FINDING A WOMEN’S PLACE – SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2020
The Story of a 1970’s Feminist Collective in the Adirondacks will be presented by Lorraine Duval, Ph.D. on Saturday, February 1, 2020 from 4:00 – 5:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist of St Petersburg, 719 Arlington Ave., St Petersburg (enter through the Mirror Lake side entrance.)
Lorraine Duvall’s recent book tells the history of a women’s commune in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In 1974, seven women with their eight children left jobs, family and friends to live together communally on a 23 acre rustic resort.
Hundreds of women passed through the doors of A Woman’s Place between 1974 and 1982. The popularity spoke to the need for women to congregate and take comfort in knowing that they were not alone in the then male-dominated world. Author Lorraine Duvall tells their story through a power-point slide presentation followed by a discussion period.
Hearing about the lives of the women who were brave enough to begin anew at A Women’s Place will inspire women, and men, to take action in their own personal lives.
