The Canadian Federation of University Women – Calgary is pleased to invite you to a Zoom Meeting with the following topic:
TOPIC: The Equivalents: A Story of Art, Female Friendship and Liberation in the 1960s
SPEAKER: Maggie Doherty, author The Equivalents, published May 29, 2020.
DATE: Monday, November 9,2020
TIME: 1:00PM to 2:30PM
The timely, never-before-told story of five brilliant, passionate women who, in the early 1960s, converged at the newly founded Radcliffe Institute for Independent Study and became friends as well as artistic collaborators, and who went on to shape the course of feminism in ways that are still felt today.
Drawing from notebooks, letters, recordings, journals, poetry, and prose, Maggie Doherty weaves a moving narrative of friendship and ambition, art and activism, love and heartbreak, and shows how the institute spoke to the condition of women on the cusp of liberation.
