Hear a new approach to the origins of feminism by a pioneer scholar. Dr. Wagner weaves the story of the Six Nation Confederacy, whose practice of gender equality inspired the emerging woman’s rights movement in upstate New York over 100 years ago. 
This thought-provoking lecture is based on her book, Sisters in Spirit: Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Influence on Early American Feminists. Lecture is followed by a Q&A with the author, accompanied by refreshments.
This lecture is sponsored by the New York Council for the Humanities, Speakers in the Humanities program. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
