Interview with Marjorie Spruill.  Forty years ago, two women’s movements drew a line in the sand between liberals and conservatives. The legacy of that rift is still evident today in American politics and social policies.  Gloria Steinem was quoted in 2015 in The New Yorker as saying the National Women’s Conference in 1977 “…may take the prize as the most important event nobody knows about.”  After the United Nations established International Women’s Year (IWY) in 1975, Congress mandated and funded state conferences to elect delegates to attend the National Women’s Conference in Houston in 1977. At that conference, Bella Abzug, Steinem, and other feminists adopted a National Plan of Action, endorsing the hot-button issues of abortion rights, the Equal Rights Amendment, and gay rights – the latter a new issue in national politics. Across town, Phyllis Schlafly, Lottie Beth Hobbs, and the conservative women’s movement held a massive rally to protest federally funded feminism and launch a Pro-Family movement.  “Divided We Stand” reveals how the battle between feminists and their conservative challengers divided the nation as Democrats continued to support women’s rights and Republicans cast themselves as the party of family values.

Interview with Kathy Izard.  Mrs. Izard was enjoying a comfortable existence when she came face to face with the reality that while her dedicated service at the community soup kitchen might be feeding her soul, it would never solve the bigger needs of the homeless population. Confronting the question of where are the beds? Kathy realized that she had been called to take on what seemed like an insurmountable task – to build housing for Charlotte’s homeless.  Woven together with this uplifting story of a call to social action is Kathy’s personal struggle with faith, forgiveness, and fulfillment. In telling her story, Kathy invites you to consider rewriting your own. What’s calling you? And as crazy at it seems, it may be crazier not to try.

As a young girl in a cattle-herding village in Zimbabwe, she dreamed of receiving an education but instead was married young and by eighteen, without a high school graduation, she was already a mother of three. Trent encountered a visiting American woman, Jo Luck of Heifer International, who assured her that anything was possible, reawakening her sacred dream. Tererai planted her dreams deep in the earth and prayed they would grow. They did, and now not only has she earned her Ph.D. but she has also built schools for girls in Zimbabwe, with funding from Oprah. 

The Awakened Woman is her accessible, intimate, and evocative guide that teaches nine essential lessons to encourage all women to reexamine their dreams and uncover the power hidden within them – power that can recreate our world for the better.
