Gettysburg College Democrats to Host Two Women’s Rights Icons Program Title: “Women’s Rights Under Attack: Fighting Back in 2018” Date and Time: Thurs., October 4th, 7PM Location: College Union Building, Rm. 260
Gettysburg, PA: Join Carol Tracy and Kate Michelman, two legendary women’s rights activists, for a discussion about the implications of this year’s election on a woman’s right to choose, equality in the workplace, and a host of other issues facing women in America. Learn how you can fight the status quo, make your voice heard, and fight back against the devastating policies and anti-woman rhetoric coming from the Republican-led Congress and Donald Trump’s White House. More women are running for elected office in 2018 than any other year in history, and this discussion will give you an opportunity to engage with two women who have spent decades on the front lines defending women’s rights.
About our Speakers: Carol Tracy is Executive Director of the Women’s Law Project in Philadelphia. She has fought for women’s rights at every level of government from city police departments to the Supreme Court. She has over thirty years of experience in the field, and now lectures at the University of Pennsylvania and Bryn Mawr College. Kate Michelman spent nearly two decades as President of NARAL Pro-Choice America, the country’s largest reproductive rights advocacy group. She has testified in Supreme Court confirmation hearings, advised Senators, Cabinet Secretaries, and Presidents on matters concerning women’s reproductive rights, and was dubbed “the face of reproductive rights” by the Washington Post.
The event will be a student-moderated discussion, and there will be light refreshments.
