Rekindling the Spark of the New Deal
Last month, at our first-ever conference,“Women and the Spirit of the New Deal,” we welcomed writers, artists, scholars, labor leaders, elected officials, and activists to UC Berkeley to partake in the lessons, inspiration, and practical wisdom to be found in the unsung “she-roes” of the New Deal. More and more women today are following in their footsteps–taking leadership in government and civil society, working for social justice, health, education, and the environment. Might this spark a return to the kind of leadership women brought to the New Deal?
