Mrs. America Discussion Group

We are hosting a four-week discussion group on the Mrs. America series running on Hulu.  The series covers Phyllis Schlafly and the conservative response to passing the Equal Rights Amendment.

Hulu is offering a free one-month trial, so participating won’t dent anyone’s pocketbook.  We will meet on Monday evenings in May to discuss the history behind the series and ways that history is reflected today.

We will meet through Zoom on May 4, 11, 18, and 25th, 7 to 8 p.m.  If you’re interested in joining us, please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/c9tMuuYoGhjMy9oC6
