International Federation of Professional Business Women - 0 views

  •  
    This the offical website for the group and explains the mission and the values of the group as a whole. It also offers history on the creation of the group and what the group is currently involved with today. I found it extremely intresting that a Kentucky women born before women had the right to vote could make such a huge impact not only on a state level or a nation wide level, but on an international level, like Lena Phillips was able to accomplish in her lifetime.

    Powers turned her attention to her family genealogy, trying to find out more about her great-aunt Celia Mudd, who was born into slavery but eventually inherited the rural Kentucky farm in Nelson County on which she spent all her life. Powers found a 1902 will in which Sam Lancaster, whose father had bought the farm, left all 500 acres to Georgia's Aunt Celia. Lancaster's surviving brother sued and the case went to Kentucky's highest court, yet most newspapers declined to report about it. After winning the case Celia Mudd become a local philanthropist. Powers wrote up this family history as a novel.

The University of Louisville's Women's Center - 0 views

  •  
    I really liked what the University of Louisville was doing to try to impower the lives of the women students and the women living in Jefferson County. The goal of the Women's Center is to promote equality between men and women, increase the self reliance of women and to display and demonstrate everything that women do for society. The goal is to change the mindset of both men and women who are living in a different era and to show that women are capable of accomplishing anything that a man is capable of accomplishing.

White women as Postmodern Vehicle of Black Oppression - 1 views

  •  
    An interesting journal article written by Ronald E. Hall describing the way in which white women have indirectly become a form of oppression to African Americans. Hall insists that the feminist movement happened at such an inoppurtune time that because it invariably coincided with the civil rights movement, issues of civil rigjts that were attempting to be addressed were pushed to the wayside in favor of addressing the concerns of white women and the feminist movement. It is an interesting perspective on both accounts and deserves a look.

    "Selective finding aid to Lexington newspapers about significant people, places and events from 1787 to December 31, 2007.
