What do Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Dorothy Vaughn, Thelma, Louise and Dolly Parton have in common other than they're a bunch of bad-ass women? They are also the subjects of films being shown at the Iron Horse Hotel in honor of Women’s History Month.
Every Monday night in March from 6 to 9 p.m. The Iron Horse will host a free pivotal women's film and a pre-show Q&A session with a local "boss lady" in the lobby. Plus, happy hour food and drink specials will be available during the event that's , by the way, open to both men and women.
Here's the schedule:
- Monday, March 4: "RBG" with OnMilwaukee Senior Writer/Editorial Manager Molly Snyder (Hey, that's me!)
- Monday, March 11: "Hidden Figures" with BID Manager at North Avenue/Fond du Lac Marketplace Robin Reese
- Monday, March 18: "Thelma & Louise" with media personality Elizabeth Kay of 99.1 The Mix and WISN 12
- Monday, March 25: "9-to-5" with Lottie Royten of Lottie Lillian Photography
Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.
As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
