A CONVERSATION ABOUT GENDER POLITICS
Dr. Doreen Mattingly, Professor and Chair, Women’s Studies Department, SDSU Doreen Mattingly’s newest book is A Feminist in the White House: Midge
Costanza, the Carter Years, and Culture Wars.
(New York: Oxford University Press, 2016)
Through the lens of Constanza’s story, readers catch a unique perspective of the rise of debates which have defined the feminist movement and sexual politics to this very day. Mattingly also reveals a wider, but heretofore neglected, narrative of the complex era of gender politics in the late 1970’s Washington – a history which continues to resonate in politics today.
