She has published more than 20 books, including the now-classic anthologies Sisterhood is Powerful and Sisterhood is Global.  Sisterhood is Powerful was cited by the New York Public Library as “One of the 100 most influential books of the 20th Century.” In 1990, as Ms. Magazine Editor-in-Chief, she re-launched the magazine as an international, award-winning, ad-free bimonthly.  She is a recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Prize in Poetry and numerous other honors. Robin Morgan is considered one of the founders and leaders of contemporary feminism in the United States and a leader in the international women’s movement for 30 years.

This event is free and open to the public. Kudos to our Institute for Women's Studies for not just this event but for being a dynamic campus unit that fosters crucial discussions on topics important to our entire community. It's one of the many things that makes campus a mainline conduit to the wider cultural life all around us. It runs through UGA.
