Visionary
Women

T

he National Women's History Theme for 2019 is
"Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence."
This year we honor women who have led efforts to end
war, violence, and injustice and pioneered the use of nonviolence
to change society. These Honorees embraced the fact that the
means determine the ends and so developed nonviolent methods
to ensure just and peaceful results.
For generations, women have resolved conflicts in their
homes, schools, and communities. They have rejected violence
as counterproductive and stressed the need to restore respect,
establish justice, and reduce the causes of conflict as the surest
way to peace. From legal defense and public education to
direct action and civil disobedience, women have expanded the
American tradition of using inclusive, democratic and active
means to reduce violence, achieve peace, and promote the
common good.
From women's rights and racial justice to disarmament
and gun control, the drive for nonviolent change has been
championed by visionary women. These women consciously
built supportive, nonviolent alternatives and loving communities
as well as advocating change. They have given voice to the
unrepresented and hope to victims of violence and those who
dream of a peaceful world.

In celebration of Women's History Month, the Women in the
Law Committee is pleased to host former Philadelphia Inquirer
reporters Dan Biddle and Murray Dubin, authors of Tasting
Freedom.
Biddle and Dubin's lecture will shine a light on little known
women civil rights heroes: imagine a woman of color claiming
a seat on a whites-only streetcar at risk of insult, ejection and
injury. Imagine her arguing her case to an all-white court. That's
what Caroline R. Le Count, who was to become a leading
educator and civil rights activist, did at age 21 in Philadelphia -
in 1867, nine decades before Rosa Parks. Imagine Sarah Mapps
Douglass, who defied the white mob that torched an abolition
meeting hall here in 1838, and went on to teach generations of
African American girls; Fanny Jackson Coppin, who came out of
slavery, became an educator and led a Philadelphia black school
of national renown; Sally Daffin, who, like other alumni of that
school, went south to teach freedpeople - until whites burned
her Tennessee schoolhouse; Charlotte Forten, who in her teens
published antislavery poems and marched against slave laws,
and in her 20s taught freedpeople in South Carolina; or Sarah
Remond, who sued Boston police for ejecting her from a whitesonly opera house by throwing her down a staircase - and who
later rallied British audiences to the abolition cause by exposing
the sexual predations of U.S. slaveholders. Imagine those
women's few white allies, such as Lucretia Mott and Angelina
and Sarah Grimke - who likewise risked their lives in acts of
civil disobedience a century before Selma.
Conventional history has ignored these women and their
achievements. Mr. Dubin and Mr. Biddle will help to change that
in this fascinating one-hour presentation.
Tasting Freedom will be available for sale and book signing
after the program at the cost of $20. To register, visit www.
delcobar.org or contact Nancy Ravert Ward at (610) 566-6625
extension 222, or by email at nancy@delcobar.com.
We thank the Guy DeFuria Inn of Court for sponsoring this
program.
We hope that you will be able to join us for this thought
provoking program. *
