Amy is joined by guest Courtney McPhee to discuss speeches from the Seneca Falls Convention. Topics include how to recruit men as feminist allies, key arguments for suffrage, and the complex relationships between Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, and Frederick Douglass.
Courtney McPhie experienced a typical awakening to social justice in high school, but took until college to call herself a feminist. A voracious reader and podcast-listener, Courtney lives in Northern Virginia, in the DC Metro area. She completed her graduate studies at George Mason University and holds a masters degree in education, which she uses as a high school English teacher in Fairfax County. She works largely with English Language Learners, mostly asylum-seekers who have come from Central America in the last three years. Courtney lives with her husband and three cute kids in a Colonial house on a hill.
