What I want for ChristmasWe just posted two articles on New York History that deal with the proposed federal and state women’s trails.

December 16, 2013 article: “Dear Santa, Please bring us a women’s history tourism trail,” New York History. #1. #2.

December 18, 2013 article: “Votes for Women Trail: Federal Legislation Needed Now,” New York History. #1. #2. 

This represents a difficult phase of the “Cradle” rocking because of the confusion associated with the projects. It took a while for us to figure out the ins and outs of the proposals. And then came understanding the probability that these two proposed trails with manifest. While many people believe the trails are little more than signs and leaflets, the recognition that comes with a state or federal blessing is invaluable. However, the prospects of these projects achieving the necessary funding appears dismal at this time. Now, that’s not saying a miracle might not be lurking in the wings. Possible, but not likely. So we issued an appeal to Santa, Mrs. Claus and a workshop of elves to get busy. Check out the two articles. See above. Usually we post the direct link to the article and then a pdf, in the event of broken links in the future. This platform is building a record of our journeys and what it takes to rock the “Cradle.”
