This is an episode from the PBS special "Makers: Women Who Make America." and it tells the story of how women have helped shape America over the last 50 years through one of the most sweeping social revolutions in our country's history, in pursuit of their rights to a full and fair share of political power, economic opportunity and personal autonomy. Narrated by Meryl Streep, the documentary builds on the unprecedented multi platform video experience from PBS and AOL, makers.com, which launched in February 2012. Leveraging the combined reach of television and the internet, the project shares the stories of exceptional women whose pioneering contributions continue to shape the world in which we live.
Social Media at the Turn of the Century: Newspapers, Networks and the Women's Era of Boston
Tuesday, March 23, 2021, 12:30 - 1:30 pm, Zoom lecture by Chani Marchiselli
Before the feminist blogosphere, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram, Women's specialty newspapers operated as networking media, and the spaces through which ideas about gender and racial equity circulated. One of the most impactful of these papers was published by the Woman's Era Club Boston, an African- American woman's service helping to "make the world better." During its brief run (1894-1897), the Women's Era newspaper united a network of women's clubs across the country and provided a platform for black feminist and womanist philosophers, educators and activists like Fannie Barrier Williams, Mary Church Terrell and Ida B. Wells.
In this presentation/discussion, we will talk about how the Women's Era functioned as an important site for networking and public debate and what we might learn from close readings in the archives.
