She is well known for her breadth of knowledge and natural storytelling ability, so prepare to be entertained! She will introduce you to Achsah, a brilliant and world-renowned mathematician; Annie, an influential suffragist and close colleague of Margaret Sanger; Emily, creator of the American Kindergarten system; Adeline, a rare female in the field of 19th-century journalism and the first woman to run for NJ State Senate, and many more of the incredible, pioneering ladies of FYLS.
