Author Angelica Shirley Carpenter discusses Matilda Joslyn Gage.  For the first fifty years of the women's rights movement, Gage was a well known leader, organizer and author. Unlike her colleagues Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, she believed in equal rights for all, regardless of race, sex or class.  After Gage died, in 1898, her so called friends wrote her out of history.  One author who did not forget her was her son-in-law L. Frank Baum, who wrote about a strong heroine in his most famous book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Using historical and contemporary photos and Gage's own words, Carpenter provides a history of the women's movement, seen through the eyes of a woman who help shape it.  Find out more at
