Panelists talked about the progress women have made in the 20th

century, from suffrage to the right to define their own destiny.

They discussed the ways in which the women’s movement helped define

American culture. Professor Cott noted that even the failure to

ratify the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution had transformed

the movement from one of broad-based protections and rights to one of

individual human rights. President Clinton then commented on the

presentations and asked the panelists questions. Following the

presentation the president, first lady, and panelists answered

questions from the White House audience and viewers via the

Internet. close
