Myra MacPherson talked about her book, The Scarlet Sisters: Sex, Suffrage, and Scandal in the Gilded Age, in which she argues that Victoria Woodhull and Tennessee Claflin, sisters from the Victorian era, changed the course of America and the rights of women through their radical views on sex, love, and politics. Ms. MacPherson said Victoria and “Tennie” overcame tough childhoods and a troubled family to become pioneers on Wall Street, members of the women’s suffrage movement, and players in the world of journalism. Ms. MacPherson also spoke about her career as a journalist and the changing rights for women in America, from not being allowed to cover sporting events to the fight for equal pay. She also talked about the tragedies she has faced in her life, including the death of two husbands and her daughter. close
