NH Humanities to Go: Jennie Powers: The Woman Who Dares
NH Humanities to Go: Jennie Powers: The Woman Who Dares Online
ONLINE EVENT. Jennie Powers was a humane society agent in Keene from 1903-1936 and one of the first humane society agents to become a deputy sheriff in New Hampshire.
She was known across the country as "The Woman Who Dares," and was cited by the Boston Post newspaper in 1906 as having arrested more men than any other woman in America. As a photographic activist, she used her camera to document animal cruelty, family violence and wide-spread poverty in New Hampshire's Monadnock region and beyond.
This one-hour illustrated presentation from Jenna Carroll introduces us to Jennie's life story, the work of humane societies at the turn of the twentieth century, and the politics of the Progressive Era (1890s-1920s) from a local perspective.
