Madeleine Kunin will discuss "The New Feminist Agenda: Defining the Next Revolution for Women, Work, and Family"


Former Vermont Governor Madeleine Kunin will speak based on her new book of the same title.  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.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
