FeminismMargaret FullerGloria Steinem

Come discover the true story of Margaret Fuller, the mother of the women's movement, at the Rockford College Clark Arts Center on March 28, 2012, at 7 pm.

Lost in a shipwreck in 1850 at age 40, Margaret Fuller was a world celebrity – her era's Gloria Steinem. She is perhaps our earliest foremother, and influenced thousands, including Susan B. Anthony, Emerson, and Thoreau, with her groundbreaking book, Woman in the Nineteenth Century. Laying the groundwork for the women's rights movement in the U.S., Fuller was the first American to write a book about equality for women, first woman permitted inside Harvard Library for research, first woman foreign correspondent & professional war correspondent, and much, much more.
