Event Details

This one time event offers a rare opportunity to meet leaders behind an unforgettable era in civil rights history. Elizabeth Cobbs, the Melbern G. Glasscock Chair in American History at Texas A&M University, will moderate a panel of advocates for women’s rights from the 1960s through the 1980s. The panel consists of Francis Beal, Martha Cotera, and Yvonne Swan.


Francis Beal shed light on the intersectionality of race, class, and gender in American society in her 1969 article “Double Jeopardy: To be Black and Female.” Martha Cotera authored the 1977 pamphlet “The Chicana Feminist” and fiercely advocated for better bilingual programs in schools. Yvonne Swan fought and overturned an unfair prison sentence for defending her children against a violent n attacker, transforming the justice system’s handling of cases involving battered women.
