How the Bicycle Helped Usher in the Women’s Rights Movement (Circa 1890)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPLJgkVsXpE The early history of the bicycle did not promise great things—or anything, really—for women at the dawn of the 19th century. A two-wheeled bicycle-like invention, for example, built in 1820, “was more like an agricultural implement in construction than a bicycle,” one bicycle history notes. Made of wood, the “hobby horses” and velocipedes of cycling’s first decades rolled on iron wheels. Their near-total lack of suspension led to the epithet “b...

Whether Providing Information on COVID-19 or Voter Registration, Public Service Is Part of PR

A profession has a responsibility to engage in public service — especially in times of crisis. This year surely meets that criterion: a raging pandemic, a shattered economy, a divided national polity. The year 2020 has rightly been called an annus miserabilis, Latin for “a miserable year.” During these troubled times, PRSA, its individual members and PR practitioners nationwide have undertaken a host of pro bono public service responsibilities. It is not incidental to PRSA’s mission that the Pau...

The 19th Amendment Turns 100: Historian Explains How Law Didn’t Exactly ‘Give Women The Vote’

(CBS Philadelphia) — The 19th Amendment is commonly viewed as giving women the right to vote. That isn’t entirely accurate. When it was certified into law 100 years ago on August 26, millions of women could already vote for president and other elected offices. Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho and Utah all allowed women to vote before the turn of the 20th Century. Washington, California and Oregon were among the seven additional western states to enfranchise women early in the decade leading up to the ra...

"Objection! Mr. President, Susan B. Anthony must decline your offer of a pardon."

"Anthony wrote in her diary in 1873 that her trial for voting was 'The greatest outrage History ever witnessed.' She was not allowed to speak as a witness in her own defense, because she was a woman. At the conclusion of arguments, Judge Hunt dismissed the jury and pronounced her guilty. She was outraged to be denied a trial by jury. She proclaimed, 'I shall never pay a dollar of your unjust penalty.' To pay would have been to validate the proceedings. To pardon Susan B. Anthony does the same."F...

Essential Reads on Feminism: The New York Public Library Creates a Reading List to Honor the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment

We may all have the best of intentions when we collect and share reading lists. We buy the books, stack them neatly by the chair or bed, then something happens. Like… literally, every day, something happens…. Let’s cut ourselves some slack. We’ll get to those books, or give them away to people who will read them, which is also a good thing to do. But even if we can’t keep up, reading lists are still essential educational tools, especially for kids, young adults, and their parents and teachers. ...
