The most vilified woman of the twentieth century
Thank you for sharing this; I had not known much about Carrie Nation's story beyond her work to prohibit the sales of alcohol. Your writing has turned her from a 1 dimensional person into someone vastly more real. And, as I've shared before, I believe misogyny is still deeply ingrained in society and causes many problems for all of us.
Wow! What a read. Fascinating. Also really brought out my own “glandular difficulties of the menopause" as I felt my fury rising at the labelling, the minimising, and the reclaiming of her work by men. So important that these stories are told. Unfortunately there is no shortage of content. Bring it on Shannon. Thanks Jo :-)
I did know who she was and it’s so intriguing to learn about this.
This was very enlightening, entertaining and well researched, thank you for this! 🔥
Well that got my inner fire started. I love the term firestarter. I often feel I am part of the Ember support team... keeping it going from the periphery and underbelly as best I can and trying to support the badass flame who rises up on all the occasions where we need her. So cheers to the kindling and the tinder and the embers who keep the flame going🔥🔥.
Gay Valimont is the fire starter whose sparks have touched my life the most. From her extraordinary leadership of Moms Demand Action in Florida, through her personal tragedies, to her current effort to kick Matt Gaetz out of Congress! Her perseverance is deeply hopeful and inspirational. Hear her story in her own words: gayforcongress.com
I mean that I did not know :)
