The Rise of 2nd Wave Feminism and the Religious Right in the 70s with Marjorie Spruill

Marjorie J. Spruill

In this episode of the Religious Feminism interview series, Marjorie Spruill, author of Divided We Stand: The Battle Over Women’s Rights and Family Values That Polarized American Politics tells us about two American women’s movements in the 1970s that shaped American politics today: 2nd wave feminism and the rise of the religious right; the part that Mormons, Catholics, Evangelical Christians and other religious groups played in the clash; and how this moment in history explains much of the polarization of American politics today.  You can find episode notes for the Religious Feminism Podcast here at the Exponent website: http://www.the-exponent.com/tag/religious-feminism-podcast/
