Join us for a special Women’s History Month panel on the role of reflection in memoir writing, featuring Herstory’s founder and artistic director Erika Duncan and Gloria Jacobs, former editor of MS Magazine and past publisher of the Feminist Press, moderated by Hofstra’s Professor Ethna D. Lay. As our panelists reach out to a new generation of students, we catch a glimpse of Herstory’s roots in the early articulation of Feminist theories and the way it has played out over the decades to make Herstory what it is today. To watch the video, which followed six reading by Hofstra’s Herstory facilitators in training and community writers, watch below.
