Join us for a free, virtual, author event for the new book "Conquering Heroines: How Women Fought Sex Bias at Michigan and Paved the Way for Title IX", by Sara Fitzgerald, published in July by the University of Michigan Press!

In 1970, a courageous group of women in Ann Arbor worked together on an objective that seemed beyond reach at the time—force the University of Michigan to treat women the same as men. Drawing on oral histories from archives as well as new interviews with living participants, "Conquering Heroines" chronicles that pivotal period of history for the University of Michigan and women in higher education.

Author Sara Fitzgerald is a former editor and new-media developer for the Washington Post and was the first woman to serve as editor-in-chief of the Michigan Daily.
