We believed in the power of reason. We thought that if the argument for women’s equality was presented clearly and powerfully enough, calling on everyday experiences and interweaving national statistics, many people would understand how pervasive sexism was, how much harm it did, and why it had to end. It would not be easy or fast, but ultimately society would change and grow.
We wrote fliers and newsletters. We set up information booths on blankets. We formed teams of presenters and gave talks at libraries and schools - anywhere and everywhere that we could get the message out.
