Meeting at Brandeis University, Mandel Center for the Humanities, Room G3.
(doors open at 7:00pm... a short business meeting at 7:30pm

Ely Janis will present 'Petticoat Revolutionaries: Irish American Women and the Ladies' Land League'.
Ely will explore the accomplishments and lasting legacy of the Ladies Land League, a civic organization
of thousands of Irish-American women who joined forces in the 1800s to raise money to aid victims of the potato
famine in Ireland. Led by Fanny Parnell, who became an icon of Irish culture, the league enabled women to carve
out a new public role in the male-dominated realm of Irish-American life.
