Titanic survivor Molly Brown

Margaret Brown, known to history as The “Unsinkable Molly”, became a leader of the women survivors of the Titanic. On board the rescue ship Carpathia, she helped organize rescue efforts. She made lists of survivors and arranged for information to be radioed ahead to their families. Together with a committee of other wealthy survivors, Maggie helped raise money for destitute victims. Before the Carpathia reached New York, nearly $ 10,000 was pledged.
Margaret "Molly" Tobin Brown (18 July 1867 - 26 October 1932) was an American socialite, philanthropist, and activist who became famous due to her survival of the 1912 sinking of the RMS Titanic, after exhorting the crew of Lifeboat No. 6 to return to look for survivors. She became known after her death as The Unsinkable Molly Brown, although she was not called Molly during her life. Her friends called her Maggie.
Among the Titanic survivors is Margaret Tobin Brown. Known as the "Unsinkable Molly Brown" the only woman to row a lifeboat to safety. Mrs. Brown was on her way home to America when disaster struck. Once in the water, Mrs. Brown fiercely argued w/ the quartermaster Robert Hitchens to rescue people in the water. When he refused Mrs. Brown threatened to throw him overboard
Titanic Survivor in Newport As we approach the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic in 2012, we note that several Newport names are associated with this event, such as Astor and Widener. Among the other Newport passengers was Denver socialite and mining heiress Margaret Tobin Brown (1867-1932), later popularly labeled “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.” Margaret Brown summered in Newport from 1909-1920 at the Reitz Cottage and Club Cottage, operated by the Muenchinger – King Hotel. She was a close friend of Alva Vanderbilt Belmont and was an integral pert of the great suffrage conference at Marble House in 1914. Her rental cottages are now the site of the Muenchinger-King parking lot on Bellevue Avenue and Redwood Street. She was causally known as Maggie, never Molly, which was the invention of Hollywood in 1961.
Miss Lily Elsie (1886-1962) was a celebrated Edwardian beauty and star of theater, especially of musical comedy – with “The Merry Widow” as her first huge success. She was a favorite of many, such as the prime minister Lloyd George, and it is reputed that Cecil Beaton’s facination with her was the driving force in his interest in fashion, costume and photographic portraiture.

Elegant Edwardian lady in a lace dress
evening dress worn by belle epoque era actress
The “Gibson Girl,” a style popularized near the end of the Victorian era around the 1890s, consisted of a natural, simple bun without much detail. Young women swept their hair into a loose bun at the back of their head. The bun mimicked the more elaborate pompadour style of the 1880s since it swept hair away from the forehead, but it lacked the height of the pompadour.

Women's Suffrage : don't know if this is her or not, but read about what women went through for our right to vote....the last paragraph is a must. : Alice Paul led the more radical wing of those who were working for women's suffrage in 1917. Paul had taken part in more militant suffrage activity in England, including hunger strikes that were met with imprisonment and brutal force-feeding methods. She believed that by bringing such militant tactics to America, the public's sympathy would be turned towards those who protested for woman suffrage, and the vote for women would be won, finally, after seven decades of activism. And so, Alice Paul, Lucy Burns, and others separated in America from the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA), headed by Carrie Chapman Catt, and formed the Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage (CU) which in 1917 transformed itself into the National Woman's Party (NWP). While many of the activists in the NAWSA turned during World War I either to pacifism or to support of America's war effort, the National Woman's Party continued to focus on winning the vote for women. During wartime, they planned and carried out a campaign to picket the White House in Washington, DC. The reaction was, as in Britain, strong and swift: arrest of the picketers and their imprisonment. Some were transferred to an abandoned workhouse located at Occoquan, Virginia. There, the women staged hunger strikes, and, as in Britain, were force-fed brutally and otherwise treated violently. I've referred to this part of woman suffrage history in other articles, notably when describing the history of the suffragist split over strategy in the last decade of activism before the vote was finally won. Feminist Sonia Pressman Fuentes documents this history in her article on Alice Paul. She includes this re-telling of the story of Occoquan Workhouse's "Night of Terror," November 15, 1917: Under orders from W. H. Whittaker, superintendent of the Occoquan Workhouse, as many as forty guards with clubs went on a rampage, brutalizing thirty-three jailed suffragists. They beat Lucy Burns, chained her hands to the cell bars above her head, and left her there for the night. They hurled Dora Lewis into a dark cell, smashed her head against an iron bed, and knocked her out cold. Her cellmate Alice Cosu, who believed Mrs. Lewis to be dead, suffered a heart attack. According to affidavits, other women were grabbed, dragged, beaten, choked, slammed, pinched, twisted, and kicked. (source: Barbara Leaming, Katherine Hepburn (New York: Crown Publishers, 1995), 182.)
1911, my great aunt was a suffragette, and the first woman to vote in her parish. Go Girl!!
The strong women who fought for women's right to vote.
girl power !
Suffragettes ~ 1911 - thank goodness for these brave women! Any woman who does not exercise her right to vote clearly does not understand history nor do they appreciate the persecution that these women endured. It is our duty as citizens to pay attention to issues and vote!
Suffragettes ~ 1911 - true grit and grace...Bless every woman who fought for women's rights and winning the women's right to vote!
