Brief Biographical Sketch:

My name is Edie Abraham-Macht, and I'm a first-year at Yale from Brooklyn, New York. I plan to major in English with a creative writing concentration, as well as apply for the Education Studies program. My poetry has received regional and national recognition from the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, and I've had work published in Hanging Loose and Aerie International magazines. At Yale, my poetry has appeared in the Yale Daily News Magazine, Yale's feminist publication Broad Recognition, and Kalliope at Yale's online issue. I also write nonfiction for the Yale Daily News Weekend section and the Yale Herald. One of my great passions is working with children, and I hope to someday become a teacher.

Militant Women in the British Suffrage Movement in Splash Spring 19 (Apr. 06, 2019)
This class will give an overview of the history of the British Women’s Suffrage Movement, full of shocking acts of militancy and strength. The militant movement arose suddenly after years of attempting to make incremental progress towards the vote. Finally, after years of being ignored, the women made sure that they couldn’t possibly be anymore. I’ll focus in on influential figures of the movement, such as Alice Paul and Emmeline Pankhurst, and describe their individual contributions and how they rallied women to their cause. I’ll also show a clip from the movie Suffragette with Meryl Streep.
