Though it picked up greater momentum in the 1970s, the new wave of the women’s liberation movement in the 1960s ushered in an era of conversation on, and demand for, gender equality. While the nation was grappling with civil rights on a racial front, the majority of the U.S. population continued to feel underrepresented, undervalued and overlooked. Certain women were able to make a great impact on the American people as they positioned themselves in the public sphere. In 1969, Shirley Chisholm, the first African-American woman elected to U.S. Congress, delivered a moving speech pleading for an Equal Rights Amendment for women. In 1970, Betty Friedan, founder of NOW and leader of the liberation movement, spoke to the senate judiciary committee to contest their selection of Judge G. Harrold Carswell, who often neglected and attacked women’s rights within court decisions.
After reading/listening to Chisholm’s speech before Congress on the ERA and Friedan’s testimony before the senate judicial committee, choose ONE and evaluate it, using various critical analysis modes.
Consider theoretical, definitional, evidential, OR implication questions (go back to these questions in the Critical Analysis review) to respond to with your critique. Additionally, how do contextual, biographical, and historical elements of the women’s liberation movement affect your chosen speech?
Optionally, employ David Farber’s The Age of Great Dreams, as well as up to two (2) outside sources, in your essay to identify the efforts of the women’s movement amongst the various factions of organizations attempting to push these ideas to the forefront of the American consciousness.
