The Journey West podcast celebrates the centenary of Abdu’l-Baha’s travels to Egypt, Europe and North America in 1911-1913. Each episode features a reading of one of Abdu’l-Baha’s talks, as well as dramatized stories and historical accounts. Each episode concludes with a discussion of the talk that was featured.
In this episode, we hear about how, on May 20, 1912, Abdu’l-Baha spoke at a woman’s suffrage meeting at the Metropolitan Temple on Seventh Avenue and Fourteenth Street in New York city. He stated that, “in reality, God has created all mankind, and in the estimation of God there is no distinction as to male and female.” You can find out more about the context of that talk, as well as who helped put this podcast episode together, on The Journey West website here.
