Cambridge film studio Interlock Media, in association with Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities, is proud to participate in an upcoming panel covering the remarkable life of lesser known feminist Margaret Fuller. A clip from their upcoming documentary on Fuller-the first full length documentary to tell her story-will be screened at the panel. Born in Cambridge Massachusetts in 1810, she was known-amongst many other accomplishments-as: A leading intellectual and the most famous feminist of the 19th century; Closely associated with the transcendentalist movement and their ideals; The first female correspondent for the New York Tribune. An author -- her book "Woman in the Nineteenth Century" is widely considered to be the first extensive feminist work in the United States. Tragically her life was cut short at age 40, when a ship she was traveling on sank off the coast of Fire Island in 1850, perishing while in the prime of her life-leaving many potential accomplishments on the table. Please join us as we delve into the fascinating life of this remarkable woman who was ahead of her time.
