I appreciate that @BlachlyJames was honest when the NYT asked why he initially hesitated to conduct Ethel Smyth’s work. “I have to confess I had this sense that if I hadn’t heard of her, then she must not be very good.” Suffrage & 🎼🧵👇 Ethel Smyth…

Happy #ComingOutDay to Anna Howard Shaw & Lucy Anthony! Shaw led the movement from 1904-1915. She wasn't our greatest leader, TBH. But she was a minister, a doctor - the 1st woman Rev. & Dr. - and for 30 years partner of Susan B's niece Lucy.…
