Women's equality is one of the greatest achievements of American Society. Yet most American women today do not consider themselves feminists. Why has feminism lost its broad appeal? How did it become a tenet of liberal thinking? This lecture will explore the history of feminism's forgotten past to argue for a modern version of the movement that welcomes moderate and conservative voices as well as the liberal ones that have dominated the construction of feminist ideology in recent decades.
