She Traveled Solo: Strong Women in the Early 20th Century

Tuesday, March 9, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Tuesday, March 9, 6 p.m.

During a 5,000-mile solo bicycle ride from southern California to Maine, Tessa Hulls heard the same thing daily: that a woman can’t travel alone.

She began researching other women who traveled solo in different ways and became fascinated with many in stories from the early 20th century: explorers, mountaineers, and even a circus performer—women who defied expectations and embarked on unprecedented journeys, but whose stories have remained largely untold.

Using historical photographs, primary documents, and hand-drawn illustrations, Hulls takes participants into the lives of intrepid female adventurers who lived through the turn of the 20th century—before the right to vote or the right to own property. In sharing these stories and her own, Hulls illuminates the power of history in today’s world and demonstrates why female role models are vital in affecting social change.

Tessa Hulls is a multidisciplinary artist, writer, and outdoorswoman who focuses on women’s stories, and her writing has appeared in the Washington Post and Atlas Obscura’s Kickass Women series. She is a frequent public lecturer and performer, and has appeared at the Seattle Art Museum, Washington Ensemble Theater, Annex Theater, and other locations.

The online event is sponsored by Humanities Washington and the Puyallup Public Library.

When Your Landmarks Pass

My old landmarks are fading, the people who built them disappearing. That happens to all of us as we age. I have known this intuitively. But now I am experiencing it. And it is unsettling.

Racial Reparations: Faith Communities and Political Action

slavery

In their infamous booklet "Southern Slavery as It Was," Doug Wilson of Moscow Idaho, and Steve Wilkins wrote: “There has never been a multi-racial society which has existed with such mutual intimacy and harmony in the history of the world.” The clear implication of this statement (yet to be retracted) is that Americans owe nothing to the descendants of these happy plantation workers.
