Writing Great Women for the Public: Intergenerational Storytelling

Featuring: Michelle Duster, Irin Carmon
Biographers have long struggled with telling the complex life stories of women with outsized legacies. Michelle Duster, scholar and author of Ida B. the Queen: The Extraordinary Life and Legacy of Ida B. Wells, and New York magazine’s Irin Carmon, author of Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, join us to discuss the challenges and rewards of translating monumental figures and cultural icons like Wells and Ginsburg to public, intergenerational, audiences.  

Recorded Wednesday, April 21, 2021

The Diane and Adam E. Max Conference on Women's History is the cornerstone of the Center for Women's History's public and scholarly programs. Our virtual 2021 conference features a mix of pre-recorded keynote conversations and live panels held via Zoom. This year—in conjunction with the exhibition Cover Story: Katharine Graham, CEO opening in the Joyce B. Cowin Gallery of Women’s History in May 2021—the Center examines the complex history of women in journalism.
