The Women’s Museum | Women in Politics

The Women's Museum LogoTomorrow (9/21/08) The Women's Museum will be hosting "A Conversation With Dr. Sally Wagner: Women in Politics" from 3pm to 5pm. Following the lecture will be a discussion about the role of women.

Dr. Sally Wagner will be talking about the women who have ran for political office. She will talk more broadly about what all women need to do to achieve equity. She will also talk to teachers about how they can help their students learn about women's achievements.

Dr. Wagner is a nationally known speaker and scholar in women's history. She was one of the first women in the US to receive a doctorate for her work in women's studies at CSU Sacramento. Today she is the Executive Director of the Gage Foundation in Fayetteville, New York and has been interviewed on several shows such as All Things Considered and Democracy Now. Wagner also has appeared on Ken Burns' "Not For Ourselves Alone: The Story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony" and as a historian on the PBS special "One Woman, One Vote."
