/Members of the Six Point Group. Left to right: Monica Whately, Betty
Archdale, Ruby Rich, Florence McFarland, Betty Gram Swing and Frances
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”. /
