We–Sophie, Linda & I–are off on a short road trip to the Mystic, Ct. & Newport, RI! Last fling before classes start for me & Linda next week. Sophie’s start the following week. We’ll see the beluga whales in Mystic, tour Alva Smith Vanderbilt Belmont’s mansion in Newport where she held lavish fundraisers for suffrage, etc .On Wednesday, August 26th, we’ll celebrate Women’s Equality Day–the anniversary of women finally winning the right to vote (the resistance to woman suffrage is a mind-boggling story). You can download a brochure about Women’s Equality Day at http://www.nwhp.org/.
