Remedial Herstory: the other 50% of history class

Remedial Herstory: the other 50% of history class

By Kelsie Eckert and Brooke Sullivan
The podcast that explores what happened to the women in history class? We will examine historic and systemic barriers to women's inclusion in secondary curriculum and give educators and humans the chance to enhance their understanding of women's history. Each podcast, you will walk away with one reason why women aren’t there, something you should know, and something teachers could do tomorrow. Teachers can find lesson plans, learning materials, films, and articles about women in history on our website www.remedialherstory.com.

Episode 37: Taboo = Menstruation
This week we are talking about the most taboo subject of all-- menstruation. This is the beginning of a few episodes on women's health and understanding the stigmatization and lack of resources available to women for this monthly experience is a fascinating background to a deeper exploration into women's health.

Episode 36: Somebody's Wife and Hawaiian Missionary's Wives
This week we chatted with professor Michelle Stonis about her Master’s Thesis on the Wives of Missionaries sent to Hawaii. If you don't know this history-- you must— because it brings the full story of US acquisition of Hawaii to light. Specializing in United States history and United States women's history, Michelle Stonis is a Full-Time Tenure-Track Instructor of History at Glendale Community College in the Greater Los Angeles region. She is the founding Co-Director of GCC's Pulitzer Center Campus Consortium. After receiving a two-year grant, this partnership bridges curriculum between the History and Journalism Departments as students are supported in reporting on the critical issues involving gender around the world. Stonis's own research focuses on the negotiated gender roles of 19th-century missionary wives, which earned her Best Thesis in the College of Liberal Arts award. She consults in the entertainment industry on feminist issues surrounding body image, intersectionality, and representation.

Episode 35: JSTOR and Women in Reconstruction
This week, Kelsie and Brooke discuss the Reconstruction era that follows the Civil War from a woman's perspective, because it just makes more sense that way! Think about it! 620,000 soldiers, mostly male, died in the war, who do you think is picking up the pieces?

Episode 34: Burned Records and Black Women's Clubs
This week, Kelsie and Brooke chat with Dr. Melissa Blair from Auburn University about the history and origins of Black Women's Clubs. We get into the racism in some women's organizations like the WTCU and suffrage and learn some really unique anecdotes to history. Dr. Blair teaches undergraduate and graduate classes in U.S. women’s history, as well as undergraduate courses on twentieth century grassroots politics and the senior thesis course for history majors. She supervises graduate students working on U.S women’s history in any time period, and serves on graduate committees for a variety of 20th century U.S. and Southern history topics. Graduate students working with Dr. Blair have, in the past two years, had their work supported by the Five Colleges Consortium, the Schlesinger Library of Radcliffe Institute at Harvard, and the Adams Center for Military History & Strategic Analysis at the Virginia Military Institute. Prior to joining the Auburn faculty in 2015, she taught for six years at Warren Wilson College, a small liberal arts college in North Carolina.

Episode 32: Racism and Women in the Mexican American War
This week, Kelsie and Brooke discuss the Mexican-American War-- one often glossed over in US History courses, but one central to understanding US imperialism and the manor of US expansion. Women's role is even less frequently discussed-- and less documented. Our guest, Dr. Cony Marquez informs us about the barriers to teaching this history-- and how it often has to do with what you look like-- and gives us a Mexican scholar's perspective on the war.

Episode 30: White Supremacy and the Black Panthers
Trigger warning: this episode refers to murder and suicide. Women represented 50% of the Black Panther Party, but women, schools, and food programs are not typically what comes to mind when one thinks of this party. Women sometimes get used to soften a groups image, and hidden to harden the image in our collective memory. But women were there the whole time. In this episode we talk about the role women played in the party and some important women who's lives and work continue today.  Support our work at www.patreon.com/remedialherstory Find lesson plans at http://www.remedialherstory.com/the-civil-rights-era-and-sexual-freedoms.html Bibliography Brown, Deneen L. “The first and only woman to lead the Black Panther Party: ‘I have all the guns and money’.” The Lily News.

Episode 29: Didn't Get There, Maggie Hassan, and The Fabulous Five
This week Brooke and Kelsie talk about the importance of getting to present day in history class to cover some of the amazing firsts for women in politics and other fields. If teachers don't "get there" in the curriculum, it systematically leaves women out of the mainstream public sphere. Then Kelsie sat down with Senator Maggie Hassan from New Hampshire to talk about what it's like being a woman making history.  Support our work at www.patreon.com/remedialherstory Find lesson plans at www.remedialherstory.com Bibliography Associated Press.

Episode 26: Getting Written Out and Alice Paul
This week Tina Cassidy is back to talk about Alice Paul, one of the better known women in history-- however, this was not the intent, there was an effort by some in the aftermath of the 19th Amendment to write her and her accomplishments out of history. Americans owe a great debt to Paul-- but her legacy is not without controversy, as she caved to southern white women who wanted segregated marches and more. Tune in to find out.

This week, Kelsie and Brooke chat about research into the wellness of Muslim-American immigrant children, and Kelsie shares some of her conversation with Dr. Suzan Al Abidi, an old friend. Abidi's 2018 study showed that Muslim mothers play an important role in helping children navigate difficult "cultural friction" and that girls have a unique experience which can keep them from getting the full educational experience, especially in PE. Abidi made one request: that people learn a bit more about Islam, so for the second half-- Kelsie and Brooke talked about important women in the founding of Islam.

Episode 24: Well Behaved Women and Early Christianity
This week, Kelsie and Brooke discuss how women who were well behaved rarely made history-- and then discussed how women joined the early Christian church in big numbers, and examined two women who defied the odds during early Christianity. Perpetua was a Christian martyr who gave her life for the faith before Rome adopted Christianity. Hypatia by contrast, lost her life to a Christian mob that expelled the Jews and Pagans in Alexandria. Their stories are unbelievable and show the centrality of women in history.

Episode 20: Mrs. So-and-so, Mrs. Eaton, and the Trail of Tears
In this episode, Kelsie and Brooke discuss Andrew Jackson and the women who revolved around his presidency. We start by talking about how difficult it is to track women, especially women who marry through historical documents and time because their names change so much. We then examine the elections of 1824, 1828, and 1832 to understand the nastiness of those elections and how Jackson's wife and mother were regular targets. Jackson's first cabinet dissolved due to a scandal that revolved around Peggy Eaton, the wife of his Secretary of War. In the second half, we talk about Jackson's legacy of native American removal and genocide. We tell the story of his final solution to dealing with the natives by reading oral histories from native women.  Of course, we have a lesson plan for teachers on our website.

Episode 19: Feminist Pedagogy and the Triangle Fire
This week Kelsie and Brooke are talking about Feminist Pedagogy (Socratic Seminars) and The Triangle Fire. An alternate title could be circles and triangles... but it wouldn't make sense until you heard us out. Feminist teaching is where you break down structural and stigma-related barriers to all student participation and performance-- in this case to get more women into the field. We then do a deep dive into the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire in New York and it's long term labor and governmental impacts and the debate over who was responsible.

Episode 17: Blanks and Goddess Worship
This week we are talking about how huge portions of women's history are hard to know because so much is left blank. The biggest blank in all history is pre-history... and many women historians have tried to stake a claim there... suggesting that perhaps there was a time when women reigned supreme. Some argue that there was once a Great Goddess, worshipped above all gods. Obviously, this is disputed. So, as Brooke says, let's get into this.
