Gloria Steinem ’56 Urges Audience to ‘Stay Authentic’
Gloria Steinem spoke to the Smith community about feminism across generations and the value of authenticity and spontaneity. Steinem came to campus as part of this year's Presidential Colloquium series, which focuses on “Thinking in Public in a Networked World.”
Imani Perry Discusses Feminism in the Digital Age How and Why the NCAA Doesn’t Play Fair Activist Virginia Apuzzo Photo Speaks Volumes
In a wide-ranging lecture, titled "Which Feminism Will We Choose?," Princeton professor Imani Perry said that one of the most important things feminists do is "read the world around them" to better understand the complex issues at play. Perry has written extensively on race, law and the social sciences.
Economics professor Andrew Zimbalist writes in The New York Times about the NCAA's unfair treatment of women's teams. While men's teams get all the glory—and financial benefits—winning women's teams go unnoticed. It's time, he says, to "start rewarding women for their victories."
This photo—of gay rights activist Virginia Apuzzo as a child—is just one example of the types of archival materials being used in Smith's new online course to tell the story of the Psychology of Political Activism from the perspective of the activists themselves.
