Margaret Fuller's New England

FullersFootstepsMargaret Fuller was an author, editor, journalist, educator, and women's rights advocate. Today, we consider her one of the guiding lights of the first wave of feminism in America.

She was the first editor of the Transcendentalist newspaper The Dial and the author of the landmark Woman in the Nineteenth Century. She was the first woman journalist and the first literary editor for a major American newspaper (New-York Tribune), the first woman foreign correspondent, and the first to serve in that capacity during wartime (Italian Revolution). Before Margaret Fuller died tragically in a shipwreck at the age of 40, she planned to lead a truly intercontinental life, contributing her many gifts to reform movements and revolutions in America and Europe.

This 24-page, saddle wire, illustrated self-guided trail guide documents places throughout New England where Margaret Fuller lived, worked, and visited including sites in Concord, Cambridge, and Boston, Massachusetts, and points west, north, and south of the city. There are also sites in Rhode Island and New Hampshire. The trail was written and designed by Bonnie Hurd Smith for the Margaret Fuller Bicentennial in 2010 from biographies by Joan von Mehren and Charles Capper. It features dozens of historical photographs and quotes from Fuller's work. Part of the proceeds from sales return to the Bicentennial committee for future projects.

Cakes for the Queen book

Cakes for the Queen of Heaven book by Rev. Shirley RanckCakes for the Queen of Heaven, by Shirley Ranck, provides in book format the powerful lessons of the life-transforming curriculum by the same author. The book version, first published in the 90s, makes this material accessible for women today. It can be used by individuals or small groups to explore key issues women still struggle with today.

Cakes for the Queen of Heaven explores the relationship between women's religious history and the personal issues that arise in women living in this patriarchal society. Women struggle with issues of body image, troubled mother-daughter relationships, sexual freedom and access to power. We need to know that there was a time when the female body was sacred; that there once was a long-lasting religion in which the chief divine actors were a mother and her daughter; that in very ancient times women had significant power in their societies; that although patriarchal societies have oppressed women for centuries, there have always been strong and talented women. Our female history has been erased and trivialized for too long. In this book we meet ancient goddesses and their stories from around the world, real women in ancient Sumer, in Greece, in Judaism and in Christianity. In Cakes for the Queen of Heaven the past is before us, the women are there, and they help us change our lives.
