Matilda Joslyn Gage was considered equally as important as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. These three women were often referred to as the "triumvirate of the movement". Matilda was an amazing woman who offered her Fayetteville, NY, home as a station for the Underground Railroad, was adopted into the Wolf Clan of the Mohawk Nation, edited a newspaper, encouraged her son-in-law, L. Frank Baum, to write his Oz stories, and worked for the separation of church and state.
This lecture will be presented by the Founder and Executive Director of the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation, Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner, and the foremost authority on the subject. Formed twelve years ago the Foundation runs the Matilda Roslyn Gage Center for Dialogue on Social Justice Issues.
