Country Bookshelf Author Event – “Feminism’s Forgotten Fight: the Unfinished Struggle for Work and Family”

An announcement from Heather Jackson, community member and past BPW member:

Author event – book signing and discussion with Kirsten Swinth

On Nov. 1st at 6:00pm, author Kirsten Swinth will discuss her new book, Feminism’s Forgotten Fight: The Unfinished Struggle for Work and Family, at Bozeman’s Country Bookshelf downtown.

In her book, Kirsten offers a spirited defense of feminism and examines the lack of support for working mothers that we’ve seen across generations and still today. She resurrects the 1960’s & 70’s feminist movement’s comprehensive vision for work and family at a time when feminism’s principles are under renewed attack

This a free event that is open to the public.  The Author will be available to sign copies of her book after the discussion!
