About the Event

When we talk about politics of the New Right, we think of names like Newt Gingrich, Jerry Falwell, and Ronald Reagan. This course looks at the women’s work behind the successful men– the volunteers and organizers who laid the foundation of the modern Republican party in the South. The talk will trace conservative women’s contributions from volunteering in the 1960s to finally running for office themselves in later decades. Learn how unknown women created our current political landscape.
