Event Details

Description

In November 2018, the greatest number of women in American history entered Congress, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and ​“the Squad”, “the Badasses,” the first two Native Americans, and the first two Muslim women. All diverse in background, age, professional experience and ideology, they were swept into office on a wave of grassroots support. Jennifer Steinhauer follows their first year in the 116th Congress. Before there was a ​“Notorious RBG,” there was an ​“Audacious Bessie M.” Trestman's Fair Labor Lawyer recounts Bessie Margolin's thrilling and inspirational journey from the New Orleans Jewish Orphans Home through the New Deal to the nation's highest courts, where she defended the New Deal’s Tennessee Valley
