Women in the Arena (and a bit of Roosevelt, too)

September 20-22, 2018

For a man whose whole life appears to embody a Cult of Masculinity, Theodore Roosevelt was surprisingly enlightened about the roles and rights of women. Beginning with his senior thesis at Harvard, and extending through his whole remarkable life, TR argued that women should have better protections and broader rights in American society.

Join us as we explore Roosevelt's relations with the women in his life—and, more importantly, his broader understanding of the role of women in American politics and American life, including Jane Addams, Margaret Sanger, Emma Goldman, and others.
