It was 30 years ago today. Okay, thats not exactly how the lyrics to Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band go, but its close. And so is the 30-year anniversary (give or take 56 days) of the historic 1977 National Womens Conference that was held here in Houston, where 20,000 women came together to discuss the future of womens rights. At todays talk at the Wortham Center, you can hear what 73-year-old feminist icon Gloria Steinem, a conference attendee, has to say about the progress of feminism during the last three decades and the new challenges of the womens rights movement. Oh, and if you want some one-on-one time with the woman who helped found Ms. magazine, pop an extra $200 and attend a private reception with her.
