Event Details

Presented LIVE on Zoom

This event is co-presented by the Center for American Studies at Columbia University and the Center for Women's History at the New-York Historical Society

Feminist writer-activists of the 1960s, '70s, and '80s sparked a diverse, visionary, and revolutionary movement for freedom and social justice that 50 years on is as relevant and urgent as it’s ever been. Alix Kates Shulman and Honor Moore—editors of a revelatory new Library of America anthology—lead an inter-generational conversation about the living questions at the heart of the book: What is the tradition of feminist writing and what is its legacy for today? What unfulfilled possibilities need to be recovered and passed on in the time of #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter?
