I am reminded of the 2002 PBS-TV special called "If Women Ruled The World", which was a dinner party held in Washington DC back in 1999. It was hosted by Canadian Prime Minister (at the time) Kim Campbell, and featured a slew of prominent females. Among the attendants was Campbell; Betty Friedan, author of "The Feminine Mystique" and co-founder of the National Organization for Women; Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court; U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson; Eleanor Clift of Newsweek magazine; Elle magazine editor-in-chief Elaina Richardson; Lt. Gen. Claudia Kennedy, who retired in 2000 as the U.S. Army’s highest ranking female; and Wendy Shalit, the post-feminist author of "A Return to Modesty: Discovering the Lost Virtue."

For some reason, this gathering doesn't get more publicity and recognition nowadays. Maybe because there were no A-List show-biz celebrities. And as I recall, I don't think Hillary Clinton (who was the First Lady at the time when it was taped) was at the event.

Thanks for the links, Steven!

Recently C-Span has been presenting (as always, without comment) archival materials from the early '70s dealing with the position of women in the mid-20th century post-Civil Rights era. That's where I saw the video in the OP yesterday, which was juxtaposed with the archival footage.

I vividly recall the excitement and optimism of the women's movement through my own involvement. My contributions being relatively minimal, still it was all around me and I was aware of the rapid increase in awareness regarding the issues confronted.

It's sad that we're losing much of the ground we had gained. However, the involvement of younger women in the current revitalized movement gives me hope that women may yet go beyond the dramatic strides toward equality which were achieved in the 1970s.
