Off the Cuff with author-historian Joan Marie Johnson

Employed by Northwestern University, Joan Marie Johnson is well-known for her non-fiction books about women’s activism. The latest, Funding Feminism: Monied Women, Philanthropy and the Women’s Movement, examines how wealthy women from the 19th and 20th centuries wielded their money to further the rights of women. Johnson was a keynote speaker at a recent event in Milwaukee, during which the Women’s Fund of Greater Milwaukee—an organization supporting women’s empowerment through events and grants—discussed the “Power of Philanthropy.” Off the Cuff talked with her about it.
