Book signing and talk by author Angelica Carpenter

12:00pm-1:00pm  Merrill-Cazier Library Room 101  

Angelica Carpenter, author of the biography Born Criminal: Matilda Joslyn Gage, which uncovers an important but forgotten suffragette, will present a talk. This event is sponsored by the Department of History and the Merrill Cazier Library. Book signing to follow. Part of year-long celebration of Women's Suffrage and Voting Rights. The "Matilda Effect," which occurs when women scientists don't get credit for their work, is named after Gage, who first identified the syndrome. Gage is co-author with Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton of the three-volume Woman Suffrage History.
