Vermont Humanities Digital Channels
Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner
Please note: this free event will be held on Zoom and hosted by the Community College of Vermont. Pre-registration is required. Register for this free event.

This free, virtual program will feature Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner, a nationally recognized lecturer, author and story-teller of woman’s rights history.

In the 1880s, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Matilda Joslyn Gage were thinking differently than Susan B. Anthony. They were looking at larger issues than voting: creating a system of cooperation, ensuring that every child born was wanted and that women had control of their bodies, rebalancing economic disparity, and gaining equal pay for women.
