Christina Hoff Sommers is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). Before joining AEI she was a professor of philosophy at Clark University where she specialized in moral theory. Her writings have appeared in publications such as The Atlantic, New York Times and the Washington Post. In addition, she is the author of Who Stole Feminism and The War Against Boys (a New York Times "Notable Book of the Year" in 2000), and makes frequent radio and television appearances.
Sommers will be joining us to speak on how feminists in the first and second waves of feminism made the most progress when they worked to together and reached across political lines. When mutual understanding is had and common cause is found, more can be accomplished, and both sides benefit. Sommers will show how this fact was demonstrated by the early feminist movement and outline a vision for how to unite feminists on the right and left to improve the world. Q&A will immediately follow the event. Free and open to the public.
