Syndicated columnist Mona Charen and former Barnard College president Debora Spar talked about women’s rights in 1968 as part of C-SPAN’s “1968: America in Turmoil” series. In 1968, women protesting that year’s Miss America pageant challenged not only the beauty contest but long-held assumptions about American womanhood when they hung a bed sheet inside the Atlantic City convention hall declaring “Women’s Liberation.” Women’s rights then became part of the national conversation, transforming households and workplaces across the country and society itself.

The program began with a clip of a November 2000 speech by National Organization for Women founding member Betty Friedan on the necessity of a renewed women’s movement in the 1960s. close
