Forty years ago, two women's movements drew a line in the sand between liberals and conservatives. The legacy of that rift is still evident today in American politics and social policies. DIVIDED WE STAND reveals how the battle between feminists and their conservative challengers divided the nation as Democrats continued to support women's rights and Republicans cast themselves as the party of family values. Please join us as celebrated author, Marjorie Spruill, shares her insight into the historical impact women activists on both sides played in American politics, especially after the historic 1977 National Women's Conference in Houston, Texas.

The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. Book signing to follow at 7:30 p.m. *Books must be purchased in advance*

 

This film screening is sponsored by: , Walt & Kathy Esselman, Pam Withrow, and Sandy Soifer & Paul Goldner
