Join us to learn about the group of Ann Arbor women who banded together in the 1970s to force the University of Michigan to treat women the same as men. "Conquering Heroines" author Sara Fitzgerald drew on oral histories and new interviews with living participants to chronicle this pivotal moment in the history of the women's movement and the University of Michigan. There will be a Q&A for attendees. One Zoom attendee will be awarded a free copy of the ebook!
