LOUISE BERNIKOW writes and speaks about American women and social movements, especially Women’s Liberation, Second Wave Feminism and the fight for women’s voting rights. She connects the past to the present, seeing historical roots in today’s conflicts. Currently working on the connections of race, place and class in the woman suffrage movement—with an eye on the 2017 Centennial of the New York State victory and the 2020 celebration of passage of the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution. She is the author of nine books, including Among Women and The World Split Open, a former Fulbright Fellow, a Lowenstein Fellow at the American Jewish archives, the founder of two Women’s Studies programs and has been in print from the debut of MS. Magazine to her blog on the Huffington Post. Louise is an experienced, lively, quotable speaker with a long list of radio and television appearances, which she often enjoys more than facing a blank page in the solitude of her writing studio in New York.
Expertise includes: suffrage movement, 19th amendment, women's equality, history of the modern women's movement
