"Somehow they go quiet they go way they disappear into their homes for while we don't hear from them and then in nineteen sixty three betty free. Dan publishes the feminine mystique. Which is the launching point for the quote unquote second wave. Feminism you get people writing like germaine greer you have gloria steinem who founds ms magazine in the united states and for a while women of the second wave fight for equality in the workplace and equality in access to education. And then eventually you get something that's sometimes referred to as the third wave what we call post feminism sort of a more pop girl power kind of feminism that we see today it's sort of sheryl sandberg leeann type thing and hashtag girl boss and it's a very pat western trajectory that largely leaves out for a long time women of color women from the global south and of course my particular interest is women from the state socialist east on the western narrative has been much written about much reflected on has been archived for anyone. Who's curious about it. There's a rich repository of material to work on which i guess could amplify the sense. That really is the main event absolutely. And you know it's also sort of ria fide in other ways so when the united states decided for instance to put the first face of a woman on a piece of money of on coin was the dollar coin. They chose susan b. Anthony when time magazine decides to make a list of the hundred most important people of the twentieth century. Emily pankhurst makes that list. Very few other women do that. It's interesting that it is this sort of western liberal feminism and you know everywhere you go. Whether it's to sort of archival women's archives women's history journals kind of popular women's programming there are a few exceptions. And i would say lately. There have been some war exceptions. It generally tends to be this very western focus on western white women largely middle class women and above privileged women who were fighting for things like married women's property who we're fighting for access to professions. That had been closed to them. Who were fighting relief for certain kinds of privileges within the capitalist economic system that they felt were unfairly being held right from them because of their sex because of their gender and what. They didn't question what they really had. No interest in questioning was the economic system that kind of produced in perpetuated that inequality in the first place and so one of the big problems of the waves. Narrative is that there's a some scholars called a missing wave. And that's in the thirties. And in the forties there were many women also from the west by the way who fought in the spanish civil war and who fought as partisans against the the axis countries in eastern europe in particular. There were many women who were committed socialists and committed communists who as part of their ideals for building a better world after fascism was defeated was a world which included gender equality and many of these women go on to become quite prominent in the united nations especially during the un decade for women. Which will talk about in a bit. And that is the beginning of the erasure of this other stranded..

"Welcome to the july twenty twenty one podcast from ammonia diplomatic. My name's george. Miller and my guest is month is kristin godsey. Who's a professor of russian and east european studies. A member of the graduate group of anthropology at the university of pennsylvania. Kristen spent much of her career thinking about eastern european women feminism and female empowerment in this month's edition of iman diplomatic. She draws on that experience in a piece entitled when the women's movement went global. Kristen argues that the conventional narrative of the twentieth century. Women's movement is only half the story. The west was not always the front runner the. Ussr put valentina tereshkova into space in nineteen sixty three. The us didn't up. Its space program to women for more than another decade. But type i women in space into google and the forest head is sally ride nasa astronaut part of the challenge mission in one thousand nine hundred. Three back on terra firma. Us leaders in the cold. War worried that communism might begin to appeal to american housewives if they saw the eastern european peers. I'd opportunities they liked. Today we tend to picture soviet women bread queues and tend to forget the women engineers doctors and scientists that the soviet bloc encouraged from the nineteen seventies women's leaders from eastern europe made common cause with their counterparts in the global south seeking to broaden the debate about rights to include deep systemic. But before we discuss the overlooked and forgotten right. Grandmothers of feminism. I began by asking kristen to summarize the conventional narrative of the women's movement that she set to challenge. This is a kind of standard narrative that gets taught for instance in gender studies classes today. And you know. There's there's kind of this sort of progenitor moment with people like john. Stuart mill and mary wollstonecraft in france. Gu's and that eventually kind of feeds into the suffragette suffering gist movement which is called these days. The first wave of feminism. So you have people like emily pankhurst. Obviously the united states you have susan b. anthony and the krisha motte and then you know women get the right to vote..

And it took them three months to get report and it was musty and smelly as anything when it arrived but it listed so you need a whole team to put together a study like this of scientists elders linguists. So you don't get many studies. This thorough and it gave the complete seven hundred and one in six and about each one and how they matched with western classification. The medieval world medieval systems have memory. How much was a highly evolved memory valued in that many european hugely respected. A lot of people like thomas aquinas net in his day were recorded more for their ability to murmur is then all the things we know him for so it was hugely valued and the design of their books the manuscript when they came out churches everything else was done according to these memory and taught in schools. It's only since the renascent. We've stopped teaching memory methods in schools. One of the most basic systems.

"Certainly the in Britain. They do not have the sort of designated role of first lady but like we have in the United States. The prime minister's life doesn't have a specific role, but I think it really grows more out of historical tradition on the prime minister's wife really wasn't involved in a lot of political endeavors, and that was kind of true across the board during this time period. Politicianswives were rarely involved in and I either governmental work or the public eye and so kind of, you know, commenting Grandpa's crazy upbringing that was not unlike Winston's in many ways. But you know, she was had a keen interest in politics from her teenagers on she was a strong advocate for women. She was really a super jet in many ways, although she never engaged in any kind of direct accent. Hey, Emily Pankhurst groups did. Um, but she was She was really engaged with the world. And when she met Winston, she knew she not only kind of fell in love with him, but you kind of fell in love with his mission. To really make a change in the world. And you know, she had two engagements before that failed. And when she met him, I think she thought she knew her society was never going to allow her to rise up and claim any kind of political space. I mean, women couldn't even vote. How could they serve right in any real capacity? And I think with Winston she saw the chance to really step up and claim a political role that women were otherwise denied. And she did that, as the wife of You know, not just the prime minister. But the Hung secretary. The Lord Admiral what Winston was in power from World War one through work or too except for the 19 thirties Wilderness years period. And as she served by his side, she really served. I mean, she was not only his advisor and confidante and guide in every aspect of his political realm, But she undertook all of these key projects on her own. She really Didn't wait for people to invite her into history or into the political realm. She kind of rose up and claim claimed that space herself but that wouldn't have been. She knew a popular view at the time. A lot of the work she did was kind of behind the scenes. Um, it's interesting that you mention Eleanor Roosevelt because these women to perform a really close bonds during the war, and afterwards they were friends. Um they visited each other, and I think they learned from each other. Eleanor really took some of the projects for women that Clementine was advocating in Britain and took them home here. And put them into put them into place. And Clementine learned how to become more of a public figure from Eleanor wrote about you know, I wonder was really unique. In her time, America was probably a little bit more accepting of women in key roles. And tell Internet howto work the prize, and Clementine really learned how to do that from Elinor. So what's next? All right next January. I have a book coming out every January for the next four years on and the next January story is actually about Agatha Christie. You have always been a fan. Always fascinated with how this this woman became really the most successful novelist, succesful writer of all time, She sold more books than anybody else. And really the creator of this unique genre that lives on today, and I learned that she actually disappeared for 11 days in the early part of her career. She just published her third novel, and she disappeared in a way that was like a torrent from the pages of one of her books. It's on her car running on the side of a cliff. Nowhere to be seen. It launched the biggest manhunt in England's history. They enlisted Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to try and help find her. And then she just mysteriously reappeared. 11 days later, no one knows what happened to her during that time period. It was a tumultuous period in her life. And so I decided to dig deep into her background to take deep and for this time period and to try and reconstruct the story of what might have happened. You know, I look at all of my women is kind of like for euro. And the books I write as their origin stories, and this book is no different than that. It kind of looks at all of these pieces and uses the structure of a mystery novel, not unlike Agatha Christie's, um, the unreliable narrator that she's so familiar with, but they're really created in many ways on to write a story about a woman taking charge of her own narrative. And writing her own history. So it was in many ways. It's like all my other books, but in many ways quite different both in terms of the genre structure and the way in which I'm having a woman take reclaim her own history and her own power. Okay, So do you find out what happened during those 11 days or why she disappeared? You d'oh! I mean, of course, I write fiction, So it's my own fictional. Sense of what happened. Of course, I always believed that I write. But, yes, you do. Find out what happened to her. Interest during that time period. And then how that led to her really becoming the force that she wass The book that comes out six months after that, again is a little bit unique, co written book with a wonderful author Victoria Christopher Marie, and it's a book entitled the Personal Librarian. It explores the role that this incredible library in art historian and curator Bella to Kostya Green played when JPMorgan created the Morgan Library in New York City. I've never been there. It's toolbox beautiful structure on and it actually today holds the world's best.

"My MCATs. This is all of it with Alison Stewart. I'm going in for Alison and we are talking with Michele Ferrari filmmaker whose latest documentary miniseries for PBS's American experience. This called the Vote. Michelle in this documentary, the images. The videos are just jaw dropping. I have never seen this kind of footage from 100 years ago. Is some of it being seen for the first time And where did you find this stuff? Um, It was a pretty Herculean effort on the part of my producer County, Hunnicutt and her team on DH. You know, it comes from more than 100 archives. Historical society's private collectors. You name it, Andi. I imagine that a lot of it will be new to people in part because the story is new to people. I mean, Typically, the Story of the separate suffrage movement gets old in about a paragraph right and it begins in 18 48 in Seneca Falls, New York, and it ends in 1920 with American women being given or granted the right to vote. And the paragraph obscures the 72 year struggle entirely. So I suspect that much of the material in the film will be new. There have been other treatments of The suffrage movement documentary treatments in the past, but they tended to focus more on the 19th century movement, and we focused more on the last decade, in part because there was this tremendous wealth of material. Yeah, It's really amazing. I mean, to see the historical figures like moving around in black and white video. It's remarkable. We, You know, we touched on that earlier. But we see New York as a historically liberal state. But states on the West Coast were way faster to adopt women's suffrage than New York. It was going on the West Coast of time. Why were they States out there more open to women's suffrage. Well, I mean, there are a lot of reasons I don't think I can boil it down to one. I think it's important to remember that these were new states that they had very low population. So in some cases You know it would stop that. Extending the vote to women with service. An attraction to women on DH make Montana. You know Wyoming, whatever an appealing place to live for women. It's also that they were basically trying to establish the states. We're trying to establish their relationship to the East Coast entrenched establishment and the federal government. And they had agendas of their own at a state level that they were trying to push and the more that they had the better. It gave them more power. Visa VI, the federal government In New York, which was which was slow compared to the West Coast when it comes to suffer the suffrage movement. You describe in the film. It's described how women became poll watchers to sort of show that if women showed up at a polling place than American democracy doesn't just collapse, then women could Then be granted the right to vote. It's it's such an interesting method. It's one of like myriad methods that suffragist took Teo to break into the system, right. Yeah, they were super super creative. So that was Harriet Stanton Black. She's Elizabeth Cady Stanton Daughters, one of my favorite characters. Um and she Ahh you know, she she wanted to play the game of politics Basically. And you know, she used whatever means she could to get her foot in the door. So yes, she she finds out she doesn't need to be eligible to vote to be a poll watcher. She gets herself credentialed, And at that point, the polls are in tobacco shop and saloon. And it's a pretty raucous male atmosphere on DH. So certainly the sight of someone like Harry Stanton Block, you know, genteel middle class woman would have been disconcerting to the patrons to the voters. But it's also true that she can walk away and say, you know, Democracy did not collapse. Right right. One of one of the ways they played politics or, or at least worked within the system was even though many suffrage is didn't support the US entering World War. They compromised on that as a means of gaining support for the movement, right? Can you explain? At the time, the largest separate organization in the country. The National Woman Suffrage Association, was headed by Carrie Chapman Catt, who was an ardent pacifist. Um and she Basically sacrificed her pacifist principles recognizing that you know if women stood behind the president stood behind the war effort supported it. On, you know, they did many different kinds of work in support of the war effort that they would be able to lay claim to citizenship in a new way on DH. You Bolster their demand for the vote because of their patriotism. Yeah, Yeah, there there are other strategies made more militant strategies. Women's suffrage was particularly militant Maurin in England is that you explain the dynamic there. I mean, I know that some of the women were inspired by some of those tactics, but it was definitely More violent on the other side of the pond, right? It definitely was more violent. I'm not sure I can tell you why it was more violent because it's really sort of outside the purview of my stone. But, you know, the British suffrage movement started a bit earlier than the one in the United States by you know the league 18 nineties, women were becoming very impatient. And as you mentioned Emily Pankhurst on her daughter's founded an organization, the women's social and political union, and they started, you know, they started out small, passing out pamphlets in the street talk, speaking on soap boxes, which were Obviously unladylike behaviors on DH. Then they just, you know, they kept ramping it up. So then they would go and interrupt political meetings and allow themselves to be dragged out of the meetings. And then they started holding mass demonstrations and when that didn't work They eventually, you know, unleash what Alan bankers called guerrilla warfare and they start you know, putting bombs in mailboxes and slashing seats on trains they pour. Acid on golf screens spelling out votes for women. Um, there were bombs at the doorsteps of members of Parliament and Several of the figures in the you know, American movement had indeed been inspired by the bankers, Alice Paul in particular and then worked closely with Emily Pankhurst and her daughter, Krista Bell. Um, I think there was a lot of fear in the United States that Alice was gonna unleash those tactics here, which she and her second in command..

If you look through the seventies with the amount, particularly the racism, and sexism and everything else is. You kind of. That you got used to it, but it kinda toughened you up in a slightly different ways. So for me now when I see kind of the stuff that goes on social media particularly eights, I'm less affected by the name calling because I've lived through that. And I saw worse than that.

So I will there's a doc series of the BBC doing and I'm doing one part of it. And. I was looking at activists. And so the episode undoing. Interviewing people about Martin Luther King. Helen, Keller blind and deaf. Helen keller. Emily, Pankhurst and Gandhi. And the interesting thing about talking to people who knew. Particularly Helen Keller and Martin Luther King.
