Marjorie J. Spruill - Divided We Stand: The Battle Over Women's Rights and Family Values That Polarized American Politics

Upcoming Event
Monday, July 24, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Following the United Nations declaration of 1975 as International Women’s Year, American feminists, including icons like Bella Abzug and Gloria Steinem, gathered in Houston for the 1977 National Women’s Conference. There they established plans of action for abortion rights, gay rights, and the ERA. Meanwhile, a group of conservative women, led by Phyllis Schlafly and Lottie Beth Hobbs, rallied in favor of a pro-family agenda. In her dual narrative of these two opposing movements, Spruill, author of New Women of the New South and a member of the history faculty at the University of South Carolina, illuminates an overlooked chapter in the country’s deepening left-right divide.

Please note, our original event for this title was canceled due to weather back in March. We are happy to have been able to reschedule to this new date.
