Door County History Project: Origin of the Women’s Fund of Door County

Welcome to the inaugural podcast of the Door County History Project, presented by the Women’s Fund of Door County. This is the first in a series highlighting the contributions of females to the history of Door County.

Recorded history is by and large the history of men. It’s written by men about men. That means the stories of brilliant, quirky, brave, adventurous, and trailblazing women are generally left for people to discover by accident in the footnotes of the history of men. That’s as true in Door County as it is everywhere else.

That’s why we are NOT calling this series Door County Women’s History Project. The history of women IS history and these audio podcasts will bring you interviews with and tales of Door County’s own brilliant, quirky, brave, adventurous, and trailblazing females!

Our first effort features an interview with WFDC’s ‘founding mothers’ Jane Stevenson and B.J. Cassidy. Listen in and you’ll learn what led to the creation of the WFDC and what lies ahead for this dynamic, nimble organization.
