Lillian Faderman in Conversation with Sally Haldorson
April 27, 2022
We invite our reading community to come along as we take a deeper look at Woman: The American History of an Idea and learn more about author Lillian Faderman through this live-streamed interview.
What does it mean to be a “woman” in America?
In her new book, Woman: The American History of an Idea, award-winning gender and sexuality scholar Lillian Faderman traces the evolution of the meaning from Puritan ideas of God’s plan for women to the sexual revolution of the 1960s and its reversals to the impact of such recent events as #metoo, the appointment of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, the election of Kamala Harris as vice president, and the transgender movement.
Our interview with Lillian Faderman was conducted by our Managing Director Sally Haldorson on March 23rd. Here is the full video of that interview.
