“WOMEN’S VOICES – Women’s Rights in the Past Two Centuries”
Women have been silenced in many ways. For ages we have been denied our history. As we uncover our own past, it has become obvious that we are multifaceted and multi-voiced. Focusing on the issue of women’s rights in the United States, and with the help of creative PEN women, Jan McGrath and Sabra Feldstein, this presentation is a dramatic reading of women’s words in response to the issue of women’s rights over the past two centuries.
Carol Gold is a New Yorker who sometimes lives in Alaska, sometimes Hawaii, and also, Copenhagen. She has taught European and women’s history at universities in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Alaska and Denmark. In 2011, Carol retired from the University of Alaska Fairbanks after having taught there for 35 years. While there, she was the first coordinator of the Women’s Studies Program and founded and managed the campus Women’s Center. In 2004, the Alaska Women’s Lobby named Carol Gold, “Feminist of the Year.” Carol has written three books on Danish women: Educating Middle Class Daughters, Danish Cookbooks, and Women in Business in Early Modern Copenhagen. She has been active in the women’s movement since before she knew the meaning of the word “feminist.”Attend the March 22 Professional Women’s Network luncheon. Meet Carol Gold.
