Former Vermont Governor Madeleine Kunin spoke on her new book "The New Feminist Agenda:  Defining the Next Revolution for Women, Work, and Family.  

Kunin was governor of Vermont from 1985 to 1991. She also served in the Vermont legislature and as Lieutenant Governor. Following her service as governor, she was Deputy U. S. Secretary of Education and U. S. Ambassador to Switzerland. She is currently Marsh Scholar Professor-at-Large at the University of Vermont.

Robert Reich wrote this about the book: "Women's social and economic gains over the past thirty years have been staggering - but equally staggering is how little America has changed in response. What's needed is a new feminist agenda to bring the country up to date. Madeleine Kunin, one of the nation's foremost leaders, has stepped up to the plate and delivered us a home run. The agenda she advocates is powerful, relevant, and necessary."

In addition to The New Feminist Agenda, Kunin's previous books include Pearls, Politics, and Power: How Women Can Win and Lead.
