The Story Behind 13 Women
Susan writes: "Late in 2017 I started writing songs for a set of songs inspired by women in US history. The current state of our country caused me to look into US history, partly as an escape from the present, partly to find some inspiring women in our past. I found a lot of them! Some of them are famous, like Helen Keller, Josephine Baker, and Amelia Earhart. Some are less well known but equally inspiring, like Henrietta Swan Leavitt and Lucy Goldthorpe.
People started hearing about my history project and sent me more suggestions. There’s no way I can write songs about all of the fascinating women (and men) who have been suggested, but researching them and seeing who sparks my creative fire has been a blast. Here’s the list.
Here are all of the women who inspired the songs on 13 Women, my comments about them, and some links for more information:
Amelia Earhart What a Woman Can Do Julia Morgan Castles
Edmonia Lewis Wave That Rocks Me Helen Keller Just Give Me Everything
Sarah Wildes Spell Henrietta Lacks You Healed Me
Lucy Goldthorpe Open Prairie Peace Pilgrim Walk This Freedom
Josephine Baker A Little More From Josephine Maud Stevens Wagner Under Your Skin
Martha Gellhorn Witness Henrietta Swan Leavitt My Life in the Stars
Rosie the Riveter Girl You Never Knew
I realize it's fairly presumptuous to muse and write about the thoughts of these women. Here are my thoughts on that.
I found some of these women through my own research, but several of the women who inhabit these songs were suggested to me by friends and family members I've listed here."
