  *“Boston Suffrage and Activism in 1919” with Pam Swing*

One hundred years ago, women won the right to vote. There were many key 
moments along the way. One was a little-known incident in Boston, when 
suffragists, including Pam Swing’s grandmother, Betty Gram Swing were 
jailed for picketing President Woodrow Wilson. Swing has written a play 
about this incident. She will discuss her research on the suffrage 
movement and show scenes from her play “I Want To Go To Jail”.

*Pam Swing* is a Resident Scholar at the Brandeis Women’s Studies 
Research Center. She is currently researching the suffrage movement and 
her grandmother, Betty Gram Swing. Pam’s upcoming creative nonfiction 
book will chronicle her grandmother’s journey to become a suffragist. 
Pam is also a musician, a folklorist, and has researched extensively the 
Shetland Isles of Scotland’s tradition of fiddle music.

*Music by Cosy Sheridan*
/Cosy Sheridan first appeared on the national folk scene in 1992 when 
she won the songwriting contests at The Kerrville Folk Festival and  The 
Telluride Bluegrass Festival.  The Boston Globe wrote: ”she is now being 
called one of the best new singer/songwriters”. /
