Twenty years ago, after decades of breaking conventions, advancing legislation, setting new standards for American women, a group of Second Wave activists founded the Veteran Feminists of America. Since 1993, they have been preserving the history they lived, sharing stories and celebrating extraordinary advances for women and girls.
YOU are invited to meet, sit with, and celebrate the Veteran Feminists of America. These are the pioneers of the 60's who marched down Fifth Avenue, founded NOW & NWPC, revolutionized family planning and rocked the halls of education. From the arts to music to homes, homework and housework, nothing would ever be the same.
