Coya Come Home, Revisited

 

No matter which side of the political fence you're on, there's no doubt that this year's presidential election is historic by the very fact that a woman is the presidential candidate for a major U.S. political party for the first time. Back in 1950, Coya Knutson made history of her own as the first female elected to the House of Representatives for the state of Minnesota. The "Politics in Minnesota" posted an appreciation and history of Knutson's groundbreaking career recently. Despite an abusive and resentful husband's efforts to derail her career, Knutson's legislative achievements were significant: She established the federal student loan program and championed family farms, campaign finance reforms and funding for cystic fibrosis research.

To learn more about this courageous woman, read Coya Come Home by Gretchen Urnes Beito, published by Kathryn to celebrate Knutson's 100th birthday in 2012. Vice-President Walter F. Mondale, a fellow Minnesotan, wrote the foreword. Kathryn, through her publishing imprint Pomegranate Press, will donate all proceeds to the Oslo Center for Human Rights-USA, specifically in support of women entering the field of public policy. Visit the Coya Come Home page to order your copy.

 

Kathryn and author Gretchen Urnes Beito celebrate Coya Knutson's 100th birthday.
