Save the Date 2021-03-24 America/New_York Town Talks - Women in The Movement

With a few notable exceptions – Rosa Parks, Coretta Scott King, Betty Shabazz – the work and the accomplishments of the Civil Rights movement have been largely attributed to the men. Not nearly enough attention is paid to the women who worked as tirelessly as their male colleagues but were not quite given the respect and place at the table that they deserved. What was that like? What has changed? Who are the women at the front of the movement now, and what do they see as our ongoing challenges to gender parity, both within the struggle and in the wider world? This Town Talk will address these issues and more.
