Women’s Perspective invites all who identify as women to the annual Margaret Fuller Tea.
Our speaker for the annual Women’s Perspective Margaret Fuller tea will be our own Carol Sinape who retired from a long career as a nurse practitioner. Did you ever wonder about the different titles of assorted medical practitioners that have developed in modern medicine in America? What is the difference between physician’s assistants and nurse practitioners? How are their training and responsibilities different from other nurses and each other? Women’s roles in practicing medicine have expanded which definitely improved the quality of care for all patients. Carol was in the forefront of changing practices of nursing in America, and practiced in some especially challenging and colorful places.
We will also honor our newest inductees to the Clara Barton Sisterhood, Gayle Knopfler and Marcia Sill.Wear a hat and please invite your daughters and mothers! Light fare will be provided.

Margaret Fuller (May 23, 1810 – July 19, 1850)
was an American journalist, editor, critic, translator, and women’s rights advocate associated with the American transcendentalism movement. She was the first American female war correspondent, writing for Horace Greeley’s New-York Tribune, and full-time book reviewer in journalism. Her book Woman in the Nineteenth Century is considered the first major feminist work in the United States.
Margaret became a teacher and in 1839, she began overseeing her Conversations series: classes for women meant to compensate for their lack of access to higher education. She became the first editor of the transcendentalist journal The Dial in 1840, which was the year her writing career started to succeed. By the time she was in her 30s, Fuller had earned a reputation as the best-read person in New England, male or female, and became the first woman allowed to use the library at Harvard College.
Fuller was an advocate of women’s rights and, in particular, women’s education and the right to employment. She revolted against Boston-Cambridge’s learned professions because she was barred from entering as a girl. She also encouraged many other reforms in society, including prison reform and the emancipation of slaves in the United States.
