The Virginia Foremothers Oral History is an archival project of the Virginia Chapter of the National Organization for Women. It is an oral history of the Second Wave Women's Movement, mostly in Virginia. These women and men worked intrepidly against virulent political opposition, but with broad public support to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment and implement the titles of the Civil Rights Act. Please take some time to bookmark these videos and watch them as you have the time. Not only do these trailblazers voices deserve to be honored and heard, but in addition, listening to the lessons and experiences they've been through will help current and future feminist waves effectively earn women's equality.
Thank You To Our Virginia Foremothers: Jean Crawford, Marianne Fowler, Pat Harley, Mary Ann Beall, Mary Peterson Hartzler, Lee Perkins, Georgia Fuller, Ray Bridge, Emily McCoy, Barbara Irvine, Bonnie Becker, and Bobbie Francis. Also, thank you Simone Roberts for going on this wild and crazy ride with me. Very few people would've heard my idea and not only agreed to do it with me, but chosen to do it *well*. The time, effort, and research you put into this project is remarkable. Thank you so very much.
