Dr. Helen LaKelly Hunt is Bringing Light to Unknown Feminist History and Highlighting the Next Steps for the Future of the Women’s Movement

September 24, 2018 @ 6:30 pm

Dallas native and National Women’s Hall of Fame inductee Dr. LaKelly Hunt will be the featured speaker at the Dallas Institute’s event Women’s Rights: From the Early Stirrings to Third-Wave Feminism on September 24. She will discuss the lost history of the feminist movement, the progress affecting modern-day movements such as #MeToo and Time’s Up, and the steps to continue progress and deepen future impact.

The evening will feature stories from Seneca Falls to the Suffrage Movement that are included in her latest book And the Spirit Moved Them: The Lost Radical History of America’s First Feminists. “It was by accident that I first discovered this lost history,” said Dr. LaKelly Hunt. Though public knowledge is limited in regard to the historic events, she believes sharing them is of utmost importance.
