Join us as we explore the trials and triumphs of women with significant connections to the Christian Science movement. The Nineteenth Amendment to the US Constitution was ratified 100 years ago this month. Honoring that milestone, we talk with the authors who have recently presented the untold stories of Caroline Noyes, Jean Stapleton, and Florence E. Boynton.
If you have more questions for our guests, please write to us at [email protected]. You can hear an earlier program in this series at Episode 3: “Women of History from the Mary Baker Eddy Library Archives.” Also read a related article from the March 2020 Christian Science Journal at “A focus on women who won the vote”.
