Pulitzer Prize Winner Susan Faludi to Speak at Kent State

Posted Feb, 10, 2010

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Susan Faludi will discuss "Why Haven't Women Remade the World Yet?" as part of the Guest of Honor University Artist/Lecture Series on Tuesday, Feb. 23, at 5 p.m. in the Kiva at Kent State University. Following the lecture, there is a reception and book signing at 6:30 p.m. in room 204 of the Kent Student Center. Both the lecture and reception are free and open to the public.

Faludi charted a new course for feminism in the United States with the publication of her seminal work Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women (1991). Over her career, she has chronicled the ever-shifting roles of men and women in society and has become one of the most provocative voices on women's rights and gender equality.

In her lecture, Faludi will discuss where American women find themselves today, one decade into the new millennium. Massive in scope, yet also finely detailed, Faludi's talk presents a frank and powerful portrait of women today.

In addition to her Pulitzer Prize, she has also won the National Book Critics Circle Award. Faludi has written for The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, among others, and has also authored Stiffed: The Betrayal of the American Man (1999) and, most recently, The Terror Dream (2007).

The Guest of Honor University Artist/Lecture Series is funded by the Provost's Office and coordinated by the Honors College.
