As part of our “Women on Wednesdays” series, please join American University’s Women & Politics Institute, Sine Institute of Policy and Politics, and AU Office of Equity and Title IX for a virtual conversation with American University alumna Dr. Bonnie Morris, CAS/BA '83, author of What's the Score?: 25 Years of Teaching Women's Sports History and WPI Executive Director Betsy Fischer Martin. Details and registration here.
For more than 25 years, Dr. Morris has been teaching “one of the most provocative college courses” in the country: Athletics and Gender, A History of Women's Sports. Published in concert with the 50th anniversary of Title IX, Dr. Morris' teaching memoir provides not only a peek inside her classroom, but also an engaging history of women’s sports. Dr. Morris will detail her experience teaching this course, talk about what she's learned from conversation with students, and offer insight into the future of women’s sports. Order the book here.
