(Note that this Sunday we will not be meeting at Merlin's Rest at 5pm - instead we are having this special event - hope to see you there!)

 

Join host Arielle Taylor & I for a wonderful holiday brunch at the beautiful Woman's Club of Minneapolis!

Prominent Anarcho-Feminist Nik Ludwig will share the history of some of the most courageous, wealthy, and independent women in the 1800's, who not only helped build civilization throughout the American West but also were influential in fighting for women's right to own property in their own name, marry and divorce whomever they pleased, defend themselves against violence and represent themselves in legal matters, not to mention to wear whatever clothing, makeup and perfume they desired. These women have rarely been acknowledged, much less thanked, for their ground-breaking acts in the defense of women's rights.

We'll be meeting in the Library Room - check it out! - http://www.womansclub.org/club/scripts/library/view_document.asp?CLNK=1&GRP=12276&NS=WED&DID=81894&APP=80

Create your own Omelette
2 Meats: Beef, Lamb, Poultry or Ham
Mixed Greens with Assorted dressings, Grilled Vegetables, Casserole Salads, Fresh Fruit, Poached Salmon, Cheeses and Breads, and a Wide Assortment of Desserts

(NB: A full bar is on premises)

    Can I attend the event without eating brunch? The presentation sounds interesting, but a $25 meal is a outside of my budget.

      Unfortunately not this event - this one is especially designed to both bring some income into the Woman's Club (and in return we get the space to do our event), and to give our comrade Arielle who is a member some cred, so we can perhaps do more events there in the future.

      Bizniz is bizniz.

    The "lawless" "wild" west a bastion for freedom? Even for women?

      Yes. And yes, perhaps especially for women, in comparison with eastern USA.
