Katherine Turk, Assistant Professor of History

Contemporary approaches to women’s workplace rights tend to emphasize individualistic solutions, encouraging us to “lean in” to existing structures of work. But this was not preordained. Katherine Turk will discuss the leadership of a generation of workers and feminists who fought to infuse broad notions of sex equality into the civil rights laws of the 1960s. Their efforts reverberated through workplaces, activist channels, state agencies and courts, reshaping each along the way.
