Laurie James in Men, Women and Margaret Fuller
A Women's History Month benefit performance for Womanspace

Clark Arts—Maddox Theatre

Come discover what was left out of our history books at this live performance honoring the mother of the women’s movement. Lost in a shipwreck in 1850 at age 40, Margaret Fuller was a world celebrity – her era’s Gloria Steinem. She is perhaps our earliest foremother, and influenced thousands, including Susan B. Anthony, Emerson, and Thoreau, with her groundbreaking book, Woman in the Nineteenth Century. Then Summer on the Lakes chronicled her pioneering trip here in 1843. Laying the groundwork for the women’s rights movement in the U.S., Fuller was the:

  • First American to write a book about equality for women
  • First woman literary critic
  • First editor of The Dial magazine, voice of the Transcendentalists
  • First woman permitted inside Harvard Library for research
  • First woman journalist at Horace Greeley’s New York Daily Tribune
  • First woman foreign correspondent & professional war correspondent
