Margaret Fuller Tea
Sunday, May 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Annually, East Shore Women’s Perspective honors Margaret Fuller at our spring Tea. Margaret Fuller, 1810-1850, was an early feminist “influencer” in a time when the role of women in society was severely limited. She was a teacher, writer and publisher who spoke publicly about social injustices and society-imposed gender roles. Then and now, her writings and the conduct of her life serve as an inspiration to advocates for women’s rights, proved especially true for the Blackwell siblings.
Two sisters were so inspired by Margaret Fuller that they fulfilled her philosophy by becoming our nation’s first and third female medical school graduates, Drs. Elizabeth and Emily Blackwell. Notably, their other siblings also participated in promoting both feminist and Unitarian ideals, too. During our program we will learn more about Elizabeth and Emily who among other things, established a hospital for women and children that continues today and a school to train nurses. We will then have conversations with three East Shore women who have followed their dreams in the medical field: Connie Hirnle, Millie Mullarky and Carole Sinape.
Please join us as we celebrate Margaret Fuller’s vision of women able to choose and become who they want to be!
