BEMIDJI -- BSU Professor John Ellis will give the presentation “Feminism and American Religion in the Revolution’s Wake, 1780-1840s” on Monday, March 26, at the Bemidji Public Library, 509 America Ave. NW. The lecture will explore the relationship between American religious ideals and the start of the feminist movement in the early nineteenth century. It will demonstrate that many of the nation’s foremost early feminists, such as Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, were strongly influenced by religious ideals that they blended with the democratic ideologies of the revolution, a press release said.

A partnership between the Bemidji Public Library and the Beltrami County Historical Society, the event is the fourth in a series of Monday lectures celebrating Women’s History Month.
