Join us on for discussion and Q&A with author Donna Goodman, long-time peace and justice activist in New York's Hudson Valley. Women Fight Back traces the historical evolution of a movement that has thoroughly transformed society, and is in need of militant revival today.

Donna Goodman, a long-time partisan of the struggle for women’s liberation, recounts how women in the United States confronted a whole society — from the legal system to popular culture to home life — that was immersed in blatant sexism, discrimination and anti-woman violence.

The place of women in society has been put into sharp focus by the election of Donald Trump. As a candidate, he called for criminalizing women who have abortions, he was caught on tape bragging about sexual assault, and he referred to women as “nasty,” “pigs” and more. Now he's in office, but he's facing an ever-growing movement of women from all walks of life who are standing up with determination to say: “We will not go back!”
