Join the National Women's History Museum and author/activist Stephanie Schriock on Sunday, January 31 from 3-4pm ET for a discussion of her new book Run to Win: Lessons in Leadership for Women Changing the World!

Using real life examples and stories from candidates such as Tammy Duckworth, Stacey Abrams, Elizabeth Warren, and Amy Klobuchar, and organized around the same steps EMILY’s List uses to coach their candidates, RUN TO WIN takes readers through the essential steps—from deciding to run to celebrating victory—all women need to follow when looking to rise up and lead in any arena.

Inspiring a Movement
A conversation with Dr. Brenna Wynn Greer commemorating Rosa Parks’ inspiring activism

Sunday, February 7, 4:30pm ET

On a chilly night on December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks boarded a bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Instead of going to the back of the bus, which was designated for African Americans, she sat in the front. When the bus started to fill up with white passengers, the bus driver asked Parks to move. She refused, was arrested, and convicted of violating the laws of segregation. This moment transformed a single act of planned defiance into a defining moment for the modern American civil rights movement.

Join the National Women’s History Museum on Sunday, February 7th at 4:30pm ET as we welcome Dr. Brenna Wynn Greer, Knafel Assistant Professor of Social Sciences, Department of History at Wellesley College, for a conversation commemorating Rosa Parks’ inspiring activism on what would be her 108th birthday (February 4, 1913). Dr. Greer will present an overview of Parks’ complex, radical activism as a strategist and leader in the Civil Rights Movement.

This program is a part of NWHM's Black History Month celebration in honor of generations of African American women who struggled through adversity to achieve full citizenship in American society, and who have led, acted, inspired, and advocated for a better present and future for all generations of Americans.
