Our Town Covers “The War on Women”

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Our Town‘s Megan Finnegan reports on Liz’s forum at the CUNY Graduate Center last week, “The War on Women: An Evening Basic Training.”

Sen. Liz Krueger has long been an advocate for women’s rights in Albany, so she’s accustomed to fighting for laws that protect them. But even as a seasoned advocate, she’s especially concerned with the tenor and direction of those debates over the past several years, which is why she convened a panel to bring together people on the front lines of the battle.

Krueger was joined on April 24 at the CUNY Graduate Center by Amy Richards, writer and activist; Joe Rollins, executive officer of the Political Science Department at the CUNY Graduate Center; Shelby Knox, director of women’s rights at Change.org; and Jamia Wilson, vice president of programs at the Women’s Media Center.
