"Changes in social structures require a social movement," says feminist Naomi Weisstein at the Free Women Conference at Yale in 1970. Do you agree with her? What examples of social movements do you see today? Do you consider yourself part of any of them?

RE: "Changes in social structures ...

I do agree with that statement if you expect change in your generation. Otherwise it happens so incrementally you miss it. So many social movements today, Black Lives Matter, Me Too, LBGTQ. Change happening so fast now that it's scaring the older generations. I was certainly part of the original feminist movements. One of the originals keeping my last name, to the chagrin of my children's doctors. Kept working while leadership expected me to quit or slow down. Trying to do everything including every volunteer job at my children's school to show just because I was working didn't mean I wasn't doing my share.
