Happy Birthday, Susan B.

Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady StantonA brief note to remind our readers that today is the (188th) birthday of Susan B. Anthony (shown here in discussion with her long-time friend and political associate, Elizabeth Cady Stanton).  In this frenetic primary season, it might be well to recall that Miss Susan B. Anthony was arrested in Rochester, NY, then her town of residence, for voting in the presidential election of 1872.  Perhaps we really have come some distance, after all.

About Ha_Qohelet

Ha_Qohelet is a transliteration of Hebrew definite article plus a feminine participle, all together meaning "the (feminine) one who assembles" or who calls together. Qohelet is the title of one of the books of the Hebrew Scripture, known in English as Ecclesiastes. The Women's Center at LPTS feels the epithet of Qohelet is a fitting one for what we do and are. The Women's Center is, indeed, a caller-together, a caller-to-wisdom, and an assembler -- of people, of ideas, of actions, and ultimately, we hope, of transformations in the world. In this context, Ha_Qohelet is the Director of the Women's Center, and Editor-in-Chief of Wimminwise.
