Plitt discusses 'Harper Way' April 10

Businesswoman and author Jane Plitt will detail the business visions of a local 19th century female entrepreneur during a lecture at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10, in 207 Schlegel Hall on the River Campus.

Plitt's lecture, "Using Business for Social Change: The Harper Way," explores the work of Martha Matilda Harper, who created the first retail franchise in America. Plitt also will discuss what Harper hoped to accomplish for working-class women through her franchises.

Plitt, a visiting scholar at the Anthony Center for Women's Leadership, is the author of the 2000 book, Martha Matilda Harper and the American Dream: How One Woman Changed the Face of Modern Business.

The lecture is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.

This program is cosponsored by the Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender and Women's Studies, the Simon Business Women's Forum, and the Anthony Center for Women's Leadership. For more information, contact the Anthony Center, x5-8799.
