The 19th Amendment, which secured for women the right to vote in the United States, was passed in the House of Representatives and Congress 100 years ago. The amendment capped a decades-long women’s suffrage movement by activists, many of whom have gone unheralded in history books. One of those overlooked women is the subject of a new book, The Superwoman and Other Writings by Miriam Michelson (Wayne State University Press, 2019), edited by Boston College Associate Professor of the Practice of English Lori Harrison-Kahan. Michelson (1870–1942) broke gender barriers as a reporter and columnist, writing about crime, politics, and women’s suffrage for the San Francisco Call and San Francisco Bulletin. Harrison-Kahan’s volume is the first collection of newspaper articles and fiction written by Michelson. It features an introduction by Harrison-Kahan and a foreword by Michelson’s great-great niece Joan Michelson. The Superwoman and Other Writings by Miriam Michelson was featured in a recent Saturday Evening Post article. Harrison-Kahan will participate in a panel discussion on “Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage” at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. on June 24.
