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.
