Women Politicking Politely: Breaking Boundaries in the Workplace and the Home
January 20 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
This presentation includes the relatively unknown stories of six important women who laid the foundation for improving women’s equality in the U.S. While they largely worked behind the scenes, they made a significant impact. In the group are two female political operatives who worked behind the scenes along with four female journalists who also worked within the government to advance women’s rights during the 1950s through the 1970s.
Kimberly Voss, Ph.D., is a professor of journalism at the University of Central Florida. Her research focuses on historical analysis of women journalists’ careers, women’s political influence, and the definition of women’s news in the post-World War II years; many of them from Florida. She has published five books, including Re-Evaluating Women’s Page Journalism in the Post-World War II Era and Women Politicking Politely. She has published over fifty journal articles about women journalists.
Registration is required to attend.
