Berks Panel on Conservative Women


I’m interested in forming a panel on conservative women in the US for the Big Berks in 2020. My work focuses on conservative women’s divergent opinions on the Equal Rights Amendment. If anyone would like to participate in a panel on US women’s conservatism from any time period, please email me at chelsea.griffis@utoledo.edu. Proposals are due in March of 2019. Thanks much.
