    Strategies for Women's Rights - Brooke Kroeger, Professor, Author, 'The Suffragents"

    Strategies for Women's Rights - Brooke Kroeger, Professor, Author, 'The Suffragents"

    Women triumphed in part "by bringing in elites, both society and social women and men of position, power and influence, and many of them were publishers, editors…and had direct access to the levers of media."
    Brooke Kroeger on Green Connections Radio podcast
    As we embark on a crucial presidential election this year, women voters are the largest single voting bloc, but, that right was a hard-fought battle until passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920.
    To commemorate it this Women’s History Month, listen to my fascinating interview with one of the foremost chroniclers of the suffrage movement, Brooke Kroeger, including lessons for today. She is an NYU journalism professor, author of several books, including “The Suffragents: How Women Used Men To Get The Vote,” creator of  SuffrageandtheMedia.org, and a former top journalist.  Including lessons for women today.
    You'll hear:
    How women built alliances with men in positions of power and influence. How women leveraged the media to drive public opinion and pressure lawmakers. Why women’s roles in war-time were so important to securing women’s rights more broadly. Lessons for women today from the fight for women’s suffrage. And great career advice too! Read my Forbes blog about my interview with Brooke too. 
    “I never had any connections for any of the jobs I’ve had in life...” and, about finding the right job, “you find it when it feels right. ”
