You’ve Come a Long Way Baby, or Have You?

ClassGraphic How has the role of women in American society evolved from the 1960s to the present day? The second half of the Twentieth Century saw a culture that was expanding the accepted roles of women in a rapidly changing society. Women were beginning to demand more agency and greater equality in all aspects of their lives and are continuing to evolve. Together, we will explore and analyze representative films, articles, podcasts, and other sources from each decade and compare them. We will see Carnal Knowledge (1971) to recall the zeitgeist of the earlier period. Then we will read articles and watch podcasts in order to follow the progress or lack thereof throughout the decades. For the final session we will view and discuss Good Luck to You Leo Grande (2022) as a means of measuring the distance women have traveled. Additionally, many members of the study group will be able to share their personal experiences relating to this societal change, leading to many lively and interesting discussions.
