SF’s HERstory Festival: 100+ Events

Patricia Southard and Elizabeth Thacker-Estrada cover the 1920s following the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, which granted women’s suffrage, to 1977, when the E.R.A. received 35 of the necessary 38 state ratifications. During these years, the women’s rights movement transformed into second-wave feminism. First Ladies of this time were often more supportive of equality than the populace at large and repeatedly used their influence to promote women’s rights and women in public office.

Presidential wives from Florence Harding to Betty Ford will be discussed, including the trailblazing Eleanor Roosevelt and the glamorous Jacqueline Kennedy. The talk will conclude with a preview of the most recent First Ladies including Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama.
