We are living in a time of unprecedented social and economic change. It can be difficult to absorb it, much less understand what it means. To give some perspective, Stephanie will deconstruct a little history and put a spotlight on surprising key factors influencing our society today. Drawing from decades of her research on women, families, and marriage, she will explore the contradiction between the growing acceptance of interpersonal equality (gender, race, sexual orientation) and the now larger threat, the growth of economic inequality.
Join us for music, conversation, cocktails and plentiful hors d'oeuvres on Tuesday evening October 11, as we experience the wisdom of a uniquely influential and irreplaceable national treasure, Stephanie Coontz.
