We’ll also hear about how women were given the right to vote in New Jersey upon the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and how it was taken away just a few years later, with MARCELA MICUCCI and PHILIP MEAD, of the Museum of the American Revolution. And lastly, Mary will talk to MEGAN COYNE and PEARL GABEL, two women who have taken the official Twitter account of the state of New Jersey into new, self-deprecating and humorous directions.
