Kirsten Swinth, an associate professor of history at Fordham, discusses an important piece of feminist history from the 1960s and 70s. Swinth's newest book, Having It All: A Real Feminist History, will appear from Harvard University Press in late 2016. The book discusses the rich feminist activism in the United States in the 1960s and 70s on behalf of issues that we call today “work and family”--from child care and family leave to involved fatherhood and shared housework. She debunks the myth that feminists got women into the workplace, then did nothing to help make it viable for them to stay there and care for their families.
