Ronnee Schreiber to Lecture on Women in Politics

Conservative Women in Politics – An Analysis of the Power of the Conservative Women’s Movement | The Hive

Ronnee Schreiber, author of the book “Righting Feminism: Conservative Women & American Politics” and an assistant professor of political science at San Diego State University, will give a lecture titled “From Alice Paul to Sarah Palin: Considering the Impact of Women in Politics” at 3:30 p.m. Thursday in the Wendell Phillips Center Room 140 on University of the Pacific’s Stockton Campus.

The visit is sponsored by the Gender Studies Division of the College of the Pacific, the Pacific Women’s Center and the Associated Students at University of the Pacific.

The lecture builds on her observations in the book “Righting Feminism” that a key—albeit overlooked—developments in political activism since the 1980s has been the emergence of conservative women’s organizations.  Schreiber will illustrate how conservative activists are often the beneficiaries of the very feminist politics they oppose. Yet just as importantly, she will deconstruct two widely believed truisms: that conservatism holds no appeal to women and that modern conservatism is hostile to the very notion of women’s activism.

    Every woman in America should have a copy of “THE FEMINISTS”

    Go to: undergroundfreedompress.com

    This is the most explosive expose’ of the 21st Century. Get it. Read it and promote it. For the first time go on the offensive and make Americans understand who these people are and why every American woman, her daughters and granddaughters are so at risk.

    Sincerely,

    James E. Joyce, author
