|Description:||The Center for Politics and Governance at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs will present a speech by Gail Collins, New York Times columnist, author and noted women's historian. This event is part of the center's ongoing Perspectives@CPG series and is co-sponsored by the New York Times inCollege program, which works with universities to plan engaging events to promote learning outside the classroom.
Collins will talk about her 2009 book "When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present." She will tell the story of women's struggles and successes from the time the first colonists arrived in America, to the open sexism of the 1960s, to Hillary Clinton's historic run for president.
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
Free parking will be available in Lot 38 in the LBJ Library and Museum parking lot.
