"susanna salter" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"All right. So Chuck, you said, Kim Nabs town council were elected by a two one margin. I saw the same thing to for Jackson's petticoat rulers which really kind of goes to underscore this. This was not like some fluke or joke like the first female mayor in America Salt Salter is that what you said her name was yes Hussein assaulter reminds me her story reminds me of Elizabeth Blackwell Getting Into Med school. Remember it was supposed to be in kind of blew up in the face with that's probably what I was thinking of actually. Yeah. Yeah. Because I don't remember talking about Susanna Salter before either but the fact that they won that the petticoat rulers and the CAB Utah Town Council won by like a to margin really shows that this is not like a joker, a fluke I think one woman, one of the city council members beat her husband in the election in jazz and in. Nineteen twenty those crabtree. Yeah, and which they had to tastes pretty pretty sweet and then the The fact is that a lot of them were reelected when they came up for reelection. So not only was it a good idea. They proved themselves as worthy for re-election to and some of the things they did like you said, they beefed up the town coffers I saw they didn't institute a Leash Law Jackson but they did criminalize littering for the first time they cleaned up the town square meaning that they didn't allow cattle-grazing there anymore that was another thing they did what else? they graded the streets they said, how about some street lights and street lamps? let's expand. Service. Let's get a cemetery going in this town is everyone's always shooting each other. Right or they used to in the men ran the place. That was another thing I saw too I mean. You were talking about the back taxes being collected in in getting like an additional eighteen, hundred dollars into the Treasury One of the things that I saw I think it was an Jackson Hole newspaper. The reason for that was that the town had been run like really insistently by men up to that point and there was like this this kind of pioneer spirit where. was expected to take care of their neighbor and everyone didn't stepped up when help is needed. But it it wasn't like a organized structural civic. Pride and that that's what the petticoat rulers came in and instituted they. They basically said, hey, you know that the whole take care your neighbor thing there's actually a lot of things we could be doing you know through government and let's let's just let's start doing that and that actually kind of took off. grace, Miller, the mayor of sh she was Jackson right yeah. She said in an interview, we simply tried to work together. We put into practice. The same thrifty principles we exercise in our own homes we only clean well-kept progressive town in which to raise our families what is good government, but breathing space for good citizenship. And it sort of reminds me of that quote I don't know the exact quote, but it's sort of like if you want if he want the job done on time and right like Hira working mom or something like that I think you're talking about. Something to do like lipstick and pit bulls. Now. Is that a different one I think so okay. the one you're talking about a tremendous amount of sense though So the the the the petticoat rulers came in from what I understand there's a town historian Morgan Albertson GonNa take a stab at this last name. Jawan. But he sure J. O. E. N. it's a beautiful just beautiful in. Either way, it looks very, very nice spelled out but historian the who were just GonNa. Call this person. The historian basically said that the petticoat ruler shaped shape. Jackson in. Jackson hole into the town that they they know in love today and that it may have just kind of. Town that ended up deserted in misused, and mistreated, and misgoverned, and lost to history The historians will to go so far as to say that either way they the rulers definitely deserve credit for for shaping the place. But the weird thing is chuck is like despite how successful the all female town council and Mayor in appointed positions was for Jackson I. It's like the town was like, okay. Well, we tried that let's wait another eighty or so years. Before we do it again. Yeah. We tried that worked out really great So let's just wait till the nineteen eighty S. yeah. Nineteen eighty was the first time that women city council people were elected again and it wasn't until two thousand one when they had another woman mayor Jean Jackson was elected in two thousand one. So it went from mayor. Miller a Grace Miller in nineteen twenty, two Gene Jackson in two thousand one that was quite a drought. Yeah. you got anything else. I got nothing else. We salute them I I do too but I have one last thing the. The women were all members originally of what was called the pure foods club, which was a social group that met a couple of times a month, and that's where the idea to run was hatched and nurtured and back group is still around today but call themselves the birthday club but isn't that adorable this group's been around since the early nineteen hundreds and they still meet twice a month and now men are allowed. I love the birthday club I WANNA be in that group they will let you in your man and likable. So I think those are the two qualifications and I have birthdays you do your birthday. Well. Yeah. Hats off to the petticoat rulers and all the women who helped shape the United States then and now and I. Guess that means short stuff is out.

"Hey and welcome to the short stuff. I'm Josh and there's Chuck. This is short stuff and this is a good one. I'm I'm excited about this one chuck. Let's go go go. Yeah I. Mean we're talking about petticoat rulers and it might surprise people considering America today is ranked eighty one out of one hundred, ninety, three countries in women representation government that we actually had. women who were mayors and city council people way back in the eighteen hundreds. Yeah they're a two towns in particular Owes Collusive Kansas in Connecticut Utah that had elected all female town councils in eighteen, eighty, eight, nineteen, twelve respectively, which is pretty substantial but then Jackson Wyoming home to famous Jackson Hole Wyoming. Which I guess is a hamlet or a Burger, some sort of affiliated town but it's basically the same place from what I understand Oh may oregon to get some email from the Jackson people. they said, you know what? Hold our beer are hold ourselves parrilla because we're GONNA one up both of those towns and in nineteen twenty year that women were granted suffrage by the Constitution or the bill of rights I should say that same year. Jackson. Wyoming elected not only in all woman town council chuck but also a mayor, a woman mayor for the first time ever and the that group these petticoat rulers they came to be known appointed women to the highest positions in the town clerk health treasurer, and Marshall in that. Amazing. It is amazing and I'm I was surprised to see that the first woman elected mayor in the United States was all the way back in eighteen eighty seven. Yeah. I had an I had no idea. Yeah. It was a Gloria Kansas her name was Well, this one was the one I believe we covered her before in something Susanna Salter who was placed on the ballot is Sort of a prank. By men in the town who didn't think that women should hold office, they put her on the ballot thinking that she would be humiliated in it set women back politically and she didn't know she was on the ballot. It was like a blind ballot until the day of the election. And she she one that's all an went on to be mayor the other ones Qaluza. Mary de Lohman. She was legitimately elected mayor in the first woman elected as mayor In Kansas with an all city council full of women nothing. But ladies that's amazing. But the the thing is yeah, like we we think about it today and we're like that's just that's unheard of you know like literally unheard of I hadn't heard about that before but the the state of Wyoming's actually known as the equality state in one of the. Reasons why is because? You know we associate nineteen twenties the year that women were granted. The right to vote does the national thing they had the right to vote back in eighteen, sixty, nine in Wyoming. So it kind of gives it a little more texture or context or both to know that that women already had the right to vote for. More than fifty years before Miller in all female town council where elected in Jackson. Yeah. That's how Mary Lohman one in Oscar Lusa is they had in Kansas they had the right to vote in municipal elections. And they won by a two to one margin on the Oscar Lusa improvement ticket. I'm the one in Utah was interesting too, and they both kind of had similar stories in that when they got an office. one of their big things was to Kinda just. Clean up the town collect back taxes I. think they had something like two hundred dollars in collected taxes just because people just refuse to pay and they went around personally to the houses I think they left office with two thousand dollars in the city coffers. and then Mary Wooley Chamberlain of Connecticut Utah She was mayor for two years and she had a female city council and she was one of the enacted one of the first leash laws for dogs. Oh cool and then wanted to protect local business. So she enacted a a daily tax on traveling salesmen coming through town. Because she was like you can't just come through town, steal a bunch of business and leave. With your pockets full. So we're GONNA tax you guys per day just to kind of drive business to protect local business. That's some smart government right there. Yeah. Well, let's take a break. We'll come back and talk about some more smart government that was instituted by women around the turn of the last century. Okay..
"susanna salter" Discussed on Aaron Mahnke's Cabinet of Curiosities
"Our world is full of the unexplainable. and. If history is an open book, all of these amazing tales a right there on display just waiting for us to explore. Welcome. To the cabinet of curiosities. Some people are destined for greatness from the beginning they either spend their lives working toward a specific goal or they are born with the privilege they need to ascend others like William Shakespeare once said, have greatness thrust upon them. Take Susanna. For example, she was born in eighteen sixty two, a humble family of Ohio farmers but her parents eventually moved the family to Silver Lake Kansas when she was about twelve. Susanna was smart to very smart. She taken several college level classes while still in high school, allowing her to skip her freshman year at Kansas State Agricultural College and become a sophomore, and it was during her time there when she met the man, she would one day Mary Lewis, Salter. Lewis had come from an important political family in Kansas and was working on getting his degree in law. Sadly, Susannah had no choice. But to drop out of college several weeks before graduation after coming down with serious illness. She and Louis got married after she finished school and together they moved to the brand new city of our Goania Kansas. It was so new that Susanna not only gave birth to their first child there but also to the first baby born in town. Susannah made waves in other ways as well. She joined the women's Christian Temperance Union and Evangelical or a dedicated to women and girls through the adoption of social moral policy reforms to areas of intense focus for the group where prohibition and women's suffrage though not everyone agreed with their beliefs or their tactics group worked tirelessly to get women the right to vote. Susanna also carried her passion for the Group's work to the Prohibition Party where she advocated for the legal abolition of alcohol, believing it to be the foundation of society's ills. Amidst all her activism though Susannah and Lewis continued to grow their family as well as its political cachet are Goania was incorporated in eighteen eighty five and her father was elected shortly after as its first mayor or husband joined him as city clerk. Two years later, women in Kansas were given the rights of votes, but only in municipal elections, the women's Christian Temperance Union was thrilled a few men in town. On the other hand we're not the time had come to elect a new mayor and for the first time anywhere a woman was on the ballots. Susanna. Salter had suddenly become a player in local politics much to the surprise of everyone on election day she found herself with the full support of the W C. T U and the local Republican Party. All of whom voted for her those votes were then counted that night susanna the farm girl from Ohio had just made history as the first female mayor in the United States and possibly in the world. There was just one problem she had no idea she was even running. At the time, it was not a requirement for the full list of candidates to be published ahead of time the WCTC you had even backed a completely different person in the race until it found out about SUZANNAH's candidacy. Turns out that several men in town had put her on the ballot as a joke expecting her to lose. They had wanted to send a message to all other women with dreams of going into politics don't. Instead, their little prank backfired. Upon discovering the last minute addition, the city officials asked Zanna. If she would accept the position if elected G. agreed to serve pending the outcome of the election, the women's Christian Temperance Union immediately pulled their endorsements of their original candidates to support her instead. Not much happened in the year. Susanna. Salter served as mayor of our Goania. The rest of the country however made her single term, a perpetual top story papers from places as far away as Sweden wrote about how wonderfully she dressed and how surprised they were at the skilful way she conducted herself in office. Unfortunately, journalism today hasn't changed much when it comes to covering women in positions of power. But, one thing's for sure. If you're going to pull a prank. You better.
