About this course

Feminism is an uncomfortable word. The history of sex and gender provokes strong feelings. In the wake of the #MeToo movement, the resonance of this history is stronger than ever. Molly Worthen traces the history of second-wave feminism of the 1960s and 1970s to better understand today’s arguments, for women in this period disagreed vehemently about the nature of the merits of feminism. Still, they agreed on one thing: the personal is political.

From Betty Friedan, Pauline Murray, and Phyllis Schlafly to Shirley Chisholm, our one-week course portrays shared experiences and priorities across lines of class, race, religion, region, professions, and other categories – but how much do they have in common?
