Autherine Juanita Lucy was the first African American to try to integrate the University of Alabama. In 1952, she was accepted to the University but the offer was rescinded when her race was discovered. Along with the @NAACP , Lucy brought a lawsuit against the University and won after 3 years in court. However, when she tried to actually attend the school, she was mobbed and threatened. After just 3 days of classes, the University suspended her. Lucy went back to court and once again, federal courts ordered the University to reinstate Lucy but the University expelled her for taking its officials to court. Thirty years later, in 1988, the University reversed its expulsion and Lucy received her M.A. in education, graduating in 1992.

Westport architect C. Charles Cutler designed this Myrtle Avenue home for his wife’s cousin, Emily McLaury in the 1920s. While Charles was a busy architect, his wife Amelia MacDonald Cutler has her own interesting story. She was born in the upstate town of Delhi, NY in 1882. After graduating from Vassar College in 1907, Amelia became active in the women’s suffrage movement with a particular focus on rural women. In her flyer, “Six reasons why farmers’ wives should vote,” she said, “Farmers, your best interests would be served by votes for your wives.” Her support for farmers extended to being a driving force with her sister behind the founding of an agriculture school in her hometown that is SUNY Delhi today. She was also a member of the board of the League of Women Voters and an advisor to the National American Woman Suffrage Movement and also authored a suffrage booklet called “On the Firing Line.” After the 19th amendment was passed in 1919, MacDonald Cutler focused on the preservation and restoration of early American architecture. Her knowledge of colonial styles was said to be exhaustive. Given her history, it is fitting that the home built for her cousin was purchased by the town and restored decades later. Despite requests that the town rent the home to the nonprofit Homes With Hope, it was sold for more than $600,000 in 2015 and is again a private residence. Additional images include photos from the home's online listing, a vintage photograph taken outside the home and MacDonald Cutler's suffrage flyer to farmers.

... Here’s something different from my collection ... Nursing mother, circa 1855 daguerreotype. I own other photos of this woman and her family, including two Civil War era photos of her lifting weights! She was an interesting lady, wife of the photographer, a leader in women's activities, a suffragist, and a friend of Susan B. Anthony.

Imagine watching the attack on Pearl Harbor unfold. Teacher Beth Slingerland could see the the destruction from her home in the hills above the harbor. Her husband, John, was a hammerhead crane operator working at the naval base. She didn’t know if he was ok or not.
During the surprise attack, nearly 200 Japanese planes flew over Pearl Harbor, dropping bombs and raining gunfire. While she watched, Beth wrote letters describing what she saw. We recently collected and digitized her dramatic letters and you can read excerpts on our blog: http://s.si.edu/BethS (Click the link in our profile.) Shown here, a pin from World War II, the envelope for one of Beth’s letters, and part of one of her letters. The attack by Japanese warplanes on Pearl Harbor took place 76 years ago today. 🇺🇸 #PearlHarbor #WorldWar2 #WorldWarII #PrimarySources #WomensHistory #HawaiiHistory #VintageJewelry

#HappyBirthday to Ella Baker, a civil rights activist prominent in the 1950s and 60s. She worked primarily behind the scenes, organizing and mentoring the emerging leaders of the movement. In 1957, she helped Martin Luther King Jr. organize the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. In 1960, Baker helped the students from the Greensboro sit-ins organize their Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. She also helped organize voter registration projects in Mississippi. During her career, Baker served as director of many branches of the NAACP. Her nickname was ‘Fundhi’, a Swahili word that means a person who passes down a craft to the next generation.

This week’s #WCW is Ella Baker, a Civil Rights activist who pushed for collective leadership and "participatory democracy". ✊🏾For fifty years, this women fought classism and sexism WITHIN the Civil Rights Movement and in the ‘40s became the highest ranking woman in the NAACP. She fought against the idea of a single eloquent and charismatic leader, instead advocating for the power and force of the people. One of Ella's most notable quotes is "Strong people don't need strong leaders." And since today is her birthday, we raise a glass to Mrs. Baker.

On their website, @weissmanfredi, who designed the @brooklynbotanic garden visitor center, describe the building as a "threshold between the city and the garden." It's meant to serve as an extension of the landscape—large glass windows overlook ginko and cherry trees and the curved edges create the experience of hiking along a meandering path. ⠀

Today was St Lucia's day (I always remember her because she was my namesake for my confirmation during my really weird time at Catholic school). Lucia was pretty cool. Legend has it that a guy kept harassing her telling her he was obsessed with her pretty eyes, and she got that irritated that she gouged them out and gave them to him pretty much like "There you go just take them. Now fuck off I'm busy". Next level sass. #stlucia #fuckboy #putdown #pickuplines #stlucy #notinterested #womenshistory #eyeballsonfleek

Fannie Lou Hamer “If we’re trying to break down this barrier of segregation, we can’t segregate ourselves”

Activist and luminary, Fannie Lou Hamer was a Southern Civil Rights activist who staunchly fought for desegregation and voter registration in Mississippi. Hamer was also a member of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP). During the 1964 Democratic Convention, Hamer, along with the other 63 members of the MFDP, asked to seated in place of the pro-segregation Democratic Party of Mississippi. Their efforts failed. However, Hamer was able to testify before the DNC’s Credentials Committee regarding the brutality she had faced. Despite her poignant testimony, the committee denied their plea, yet offered two at-large seats-which the MFDP denied due to President Johnson’s vehement insistence that Hamer not be a recipient. “If the Freedom Democratic Party is not seated now, I question America. Is this America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, where we have to sleep with out telephones off the hooks because our lives be threatened daily because we want to live as decent human beings, in America?”

Christine Meikle believed everyone deserved an education.

When one of her children was born with Down’s Syndrome, Christine devoted her life educating people with developmental disabilities.

Christine turned her home into a school for special-needs children – she dubbed it the Kitchen School. Enrollment in the first year was six students, and over time the class grew to more than 20.

In 1957, with Christine as Principal, she opened the a Calgary school for special needs children, which the CBE later took over and renamed the Christine Meikle School.

Alberta Hunter was a blues singer during the 1920s and 30s. Hunter was born in 1895 in New York, and raised by a single mother who worked as a chamber maid in a brothel. Hunter ran away at age 11 and settled in Chicago, where she sang jazz and blues at the Panama Cafe. Hunter began recording her music when she returned to New York in 1921. Her song "Down-Hearted Blues" was recorded by Bessie Smith in 1923, and gave Hunter wide recognition. In 1926, she replaced Bessie Smith in the all-black Broadway production of "How Come," and in 1928 she starred in a London production of "Show Boat." She would spend time between New York and Europe during the late 1920s and early 30s. Hunter had a role in "Radio Parade," an English film released in 1935. Hunter performed with the USO for troops during World War II and again during the Korean War. After retiring from performing in 1954, Hunter became a nurse. She worked as a scrub nurse at Goldwater Memorial Hospital in New York for 20 years, never telling anyone that she had a successful singing career before nursing. #womenshistory #albertaHunter #bluessinger #nurse #blackgirlmagic

Write a caption... Vintage beauty ads on display at the Women's Museum of our current exhibit #BeautyOrTorture. Beauty, as communicated via advertising images, marketing materials, and the exaltation of celebrities, is aspirational, and as fashion and beauty continues to change, women will continue to chase new standards.
After all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.How far would you go to achieve your own idea of perfection/beauty? How far would you go in pursuit of the illusion of beauty?

#OnThisDay in 1937 the Chinese city of Nanking fell to the Japanese. A safety zone was established in part of the city to protect the refugees who could not get out. An American woman, Minnie Vautrin, helped protect more than 10,000 women and children during what would become known as the Rape of Nanking. Vautrin was born in a small town in Illinois in 1886. After college, she joined the Foreign Christian Missionary Society and was sent to Hofei, China. Vautrin devoted her life to helping the poor and promoting women's education. She established a school and worked with parents to help them understand the need to educate their daughters. Vautrin became known as the "Goddess of Mercy" by the Chinese refugees she protected.

// ❝ Too much domestication breeds out strong and basic impulses to play, relate, cope, rove, commune, and so forth. When a woman agrees to become too “well-bred” her instincts for these impulses drop down into her darkest unconscious … She is said then to be instinct-injured. ❞
— CLARISSA PINKOLA ESTÉS,
Women Who Run With the Wolves
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
many women are instinct-injured.
they literally cannot see that things can be any different.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
it’s easy to feel angry at them.
and it’s easy to want to expect ‘better’ of them.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
but we will never reach them with anger, blame, or shame.
some, we will simply never reach. ever.
(that‘s a bitter pill to swallow.)
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
i feel such grief for women.
in so many ways, we are in such an unwinnable situation.
we’re damned if we do, damned if we don’t.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
i feel such compassion for these women.
for many, it’s a matter of emotional survival.
a matter of love, approval, security.
this f—ed up system has stockholm sydromed them.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
and then there’s the issue of ...
no woman is obligated to think how i think
or believe what i believe.
if i want this freedom, i have to allow it in others, too.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
most of all ...
women have to stop blaming women.
we, most of us, so many of us ...
are doing the best we can.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
i see you doing the best you can.
keep doing your own work.
that’s all any of us can do.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

Japanese/Chinese Pagoda, National Park Seminary historic district, Forest Glen, Maryland - the Japanese pagoda (called the Chinese pagoda at times because of anti-Japanese sentiment) was a clubhouse for the Chi Psi Omega sorority at the women's junior college. It was restored by volunteers in the early 2000s after being altered by the US Army and is a residential unit today. More info: www.saveourseminary.org

Seems appropriate today: A monument to the pioneers of the woman suffrage movement, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and Lucretia Mott. A fourth figure stands unsculpted, a nod to the ages of work yet to be done for #womensrights. Doug Jones’s astounding, but narrow, victory last night is a testament to our society’s slow and still growing respect for women - and a tribute to the hard culture work that continues today. @womensmarch #buttheywerestillprettyracist

#WomenCrushWednesday Ruth Schwartz was born on March 8, 1899 to Edward and Olivia (Huffman) Schwartz in #FindlayOhio. She attended the grammar schools of #Findlay and graduated from Findlay High School in 1917. She attended the Maryland School for Women, and Oberlin College, where she belonged to the Alpha Zeta sorority. She married George Washington Trout on August 12, 1920 at her family home. George worked at the family business of Trout Furniture at 319 North Main Street. The store was moved to 411 South Main Street around 1918, when George took over running the business. Around 1928, it became the Trout and Jackson Furniture Company. In 1947, the partnership was dissolved, and George was in business for himself, moving to 508 South Main Street. Ruth became vice president of the company in 1953, but in name only, as her husband believed women shouldn’t be involved in business affairs. The couple had two children, Thomas was born in September of 1921, and Mary was born in June of 1924. They lived at 125 Glendale until 1942 when they moved to 1028 South Main Street. In 1947, they moved to 116 Greenlawn Avenue. In 1951, they lived at 122 2nd street. After retiring in 1968, they lived at 1828 Queenswood Drive. After George’s death in 1973, Ruth moved to 316 7th Street, and later lived with her daughter Mary at 315 Fairlawn Palace. Ruth was very active in the Camp Fire Girls of Hancock County, acting as treasurer of the first council in 1929 and serving three years as president. She was one of five charter members of Town and Campus, and its second president. Ruth was also a member of the American Red Cross, and during World War II was a nurses’ aide volunteer at Blanchard Valley Hospital. She was also involved with the League of Women Voters, and the Symposium from 1937, Arts and Letters, Shakespeare, and Coterie Clubs. Ruth was the Findlay Country Club Women’s golf champion from 1934 to 1936. She was also a member of the First Presbyterian Church, where she was a Sunday School Teacher. Ruth died on October 19, 1992 and was buried at Maple Grove Cemetery.⠀

Philanthropist Jenny Belzberg has helped create a stronger arts and culture scene, locally, regionally and nationally through her many years of service and leadership.

Jenny was chair of Banff Centre for the Arts for four years, served on the boards of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and Calgary Art Gallery Foundation, and helped found the Alberta Arts Awards Foundation.

Her contribution goes beyond the arts, however. She is a board member of the Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta and an important leader in Canada’s Jewish community.
