January 28, 2016 - 4:00pm - 5:15pm
Speaker/Participants: 
Patricia Ulbrich, GSWS Visiting Scholar

Sponsored by GSWS

Drawing on oral histories with 15 women, this lecture will examine how two self-proclaimed feminist spaces were created in Pittsburgh during the 1970s, how local conditions shaped their choice of strategies for social change, how interpersonal networks contributed to the feminist culture in these spaces and what it meant for the larger feminist community in Pittsburgh.
