On this weekend’s installment of WINGS, historian and playwright Sally Roesch Wagner tells how 19th century feminism was based on North American First Nations gender relations, and how the movement split on the issue of religion.
Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner, executive director of the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation, is a lecturer, author and performance interpreter of woman’s rights history. One of the first women to receive a PhD in the US for work in women’s studies (UC Santa Cruz), and a founder of one of the country’s first college women’s studies programs (CSU Sacramento), Dr. Wagner has taught in women’s studies for forty-three years. She currently serves as adjunct faculty in the Honors Program at Syracuse University.
