No, we aren’t a web platform for new mothers. No, we aren’t musicians, although we try to hum a lively tune.
We started as bloggers when visiting the “Cradle” of the US women’s rights movement back in 2013. And now we’re a public service for communicators—journalists, writers, columnists, photographers, first wave descendants, and more. The goal is to spread the word about 2020, the anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution.
We’re counting on you to spread the word. Follow us at LetsRockTheCradle.com
THE LONGER VERSION OF WHY WE’RE ROCKING THE CRADLE
The Cradle web site was started in 2013 when Marguerite Kearns and Olivia Twine took a blogging tour of the “Cradle” of the women’s rights movement in the United States. The “Cradle” of this first wave of women’s activism is located in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. The LetsRockTheCradle.com online platform now functions as a public service for communicators spreading the word about this first wave of women’s activism.
By starting early, we have been reaching out to the news media, organizational blogs and newsletters, educational platforms. We respond to queries with by email and phone, in addition to updating the LetsRockTheCradle.com site weekly.
Information packets are emailed or provided by mail. Direct and face to face contact was extremely effective in reaching our target audience.
