Apr 26, Debra L Testement rated it liked it. Interesting The story was very interesting, but I felt that the details are portrayed in a confusing and piecemeal manner. I visited the Dana-Thomas house and it was a remarkable thing of beauty. That sparked my interest to learn more about the owner. I wish there was more info in the book. The Shakers of Union Village.

Susan won that battl e. In , Illinois was one of a handful of states that did not ratify the ERA thereby preventing it from becoming a Constitutional amendment. Susan had fought the same battle as early as The law she was promoting read: Women shall have the same rights, privileges and immunities under the laws of this State as men.
After the defeat in Illinois and other states, the NWP changed their strategy from state by state laws to a Constitutional amendment. The ERA was born: It has yet to be ratified.
See a Problem?
Now some Illinois legislators are attempting to generate the votes needed for Illinois to be the 37 th state of the 38 states needed to ratify the amendment. Like the earlier proponents of gender equality, they face stiff opposition. Looking back on this history, one can note that each attempt to legalize gender equality faced resistance specific to the culture of the day. The common thread among these three campaigns is the fact that opposition leaders are almost all women and the proponents are often led by women like Susan.
It should be pointed out that the League of Women Voters is supporting the current Illinois legislative attempt. Over the years both sides have resorted to half-truths, illogical arguments, and manipulation of facts. In that respect, it seems we have already achieved equality with men! While they give us some new insights into Susan and her world, each historic piece seems to open more questions about a very complex woman. His signature is illegible.

Also many thanks for your kind invitation in asking me to your home in Springfield. I certainly would love to see your wonderful home, sometime perhaps but at present will have to go easy. Sorry to say but a custom amongst the germans was to leave their iron crosses at home or in hiding. Did not get any but am inclosing a shoulder strap which I ripped from the first german I got in close fighting.
Hope you will accept it in the same spirit as would a cross. Will close for this time with best wishes from Sincerely, Ardus? Enclosed in the envelop is the shoulder strap referred to in the letter. Who is this young man? What is his connection to Susan and her husband? So many questions have emerged as I read these newly discovered documents. I will share other stories in the future so that readers can explore with me more mysteries about the enigmatic Susan. In response to an inquiry by Dr. However, she soon realized that public speaking was not her strength.
To meet and conquer the opposition amongst men in the legislature is one of our smallest problems. The copy of a wire I had this morning shows me there is a very nasty element in the ladies represented in the League of Women Voters. Dear Miss Paul I am no speaker.
