Speaking of Feminism: Today's Activists on the Past, Present and Future of U.S. Women's Activism
A Zoom Talk by Rachel F. Seidman '88 (pictured above)
From the Women’s Marches to the #MeToo movement, it is clear that feminist activism is still alive and well in the twenty-first century. But how does a new generation of activists understand the work of the movement today? How are their strategies and goals unfolding? What worries feminist leaders most, and what are their hopes for the future? Rachel F. Seidman ’88 will address these issues based on the oral histories she collected with feminist activists for her book Speaking of Feminism and will help us understand the contemporary American women’s movement in all its diversity.
Rachel is a US women’s historian and, as of March 29th, the new Curator of Women’s Environmental History at the Smithsonian’s Anacostia Community Museum. She recently moved to Washington after having been Director of the Southern Oral History Program at the University of North Carolina.
