Title

Article "Women's Liberation Not New, Speaker Says"

Description

This reports on guest lecturer for the Stafford Lecture Series Dr. Janet Wilson James, who is an associate professor of history at Boston College. She talks about how the roots of the women's liberation movement "extend back to the end of the 19th century." She refers to two women in particular: Jane Adams, the founder of the Chicago settlement house Hull House, and Richmond Women's Liberation "forerunner" Mary Cook Munford. She refers how Adams attempted to create a world for women outside the Victorian standard of staying at home, and how she founded a settlement house geared towards women. She also talks about how Munford fought for equal rights in race and sex, and also fought for equality in education for women.
