Sat. 11/28, 12p:  Carol Boss speaks to the co-authors of the new book, "The Suffragist Playbook: Your Guide to Changing the World".  Both of them grew up in families with strong gifted women who taught them about women's history and both were struck by the women who were active in the suffragist movement.  In their book they share the stories,  tactics and strategies of the suffragists who can teach us the skills for creating change.  Rebecca Roberts is the daughter of the late journalist and author Cokie Roberts and is granddaughter of LIndy Boggs, who served in the U.S. House of Representatives for 18 years.  Lucinda Robb is the granddaughter of Lady Bird Johnson and daughter of Lynda Bird Robb.  All of them were strong and active advocates for women's rights.
