“Feminism” is a word that continues to change as our culture becomes more aware of its own social constructs.
I held this small doubt quietly in my mind, hoping to learn something new as I listened this past Saturday to Mayumi Tsutakawa speak at a presentation called “Washington’s Undiscovered Feminists.” It was an event hosted virtually by the Seattle Public Library and sponsored by Humanities Washington.
Additionally, the four states to approve women’s suffrage were not the states you would expect.
There was no indication that Tsutakawa’s women asked for or even wanted recognition for their work.
