Co-founder and executive director of the National Women's History Project, Molly Murphy MacGregor gives her presentation, "Our History is Our Strength" on Saturday, March 26 at 7 p.m. in the Commons. MacGregor conducts women's history workshops and women's historic site tours throughout the country.
Both MacGregor and her presentation have a direct link to the university. A 2007 exhibit at SSU, called "A Fine and Long Tradition: Stories from the Contemporary Women's Movement in Sonoma County," presented the work of Dr. Michelle Jolly, professor of history, and her students, who had collected the oral history of Sonoma County's women's movement in the 1970s and 1980s.
MacGregor shared her commentary in interviews about the Women's History Parade, and the national impact of the Sonoma County women's movement. Those interviews - along with research, timelines, multimedia clips and more - are available online at the Sonoma County Women's HIstory Project website, www.sonomawomenshistory.org.
