TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Sherry Penney

We will explore Seneca Falls (1848), the first Women’s Rights Convention, and other significant efforts to promote equality for women. We will examine the split in the women’s movement during the late 19th century, the struggle to achieve voting rights, and the ERA (Equal Rights Amendment). While substantial legislative advancements were made in the ’60s and ’70s, what actually changed? Today, women continue to face discrimination in pay and promotion. Will the #MeToo movement impact these ongoing challenges? What kinds of backlash can be expected? What is next for women in all areas of our society? Are they stuck or unstuck?
Silver Member: $70; Gold Member: $63.
