  1. This sounds like it will be a great conference!

    I want to share a women’s history learning opportunity…

    Thenks to the suffragettes, women have voices and choices.

    But most people are totally in the dark about HOW the suffragettes won.

    Now readers can discover the shocking truth of how the suffragettes did it, and it’s as easy as opening their e-mail.

    “The Privilege of Voting” is a new e-mail series that follows the real lives of eight great women from 1912 – 1920 to reveal ALL that happened to set the stage for women to win the vote.

    Two beautiful and extremely powerful suffragettes — Alice Paul and Emmeline Pankhurst are featured, along with Edith Wharton, Isadora Duncan, Alice Roosevelt and two gorgeous presidential mistresses.

    There is a LOT of heartache for these heroines on the rocky road to the ballot box – but in the end – they WIN!

    The best part – it’s ALL true!

    Presented in a unique sequential e-mail series — each exciting episode is about 10 minutes — perfect to enjoy during coffeebreaks, or anytime.
