In 1961, President John F. Kennedy established a Presidential Commission to examine and report on the status of American women. The Commission, chaired by Eleanor Roosevelt from its beginning until her death in 1962, published its report in October 1963.

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University are partnering to host a two-day, dual-site conference to mark this important historical milestone and to reflect on the status of American women 50 years later.

On Monday, October 14, join Allida Black, Eleanor Clift, Sue Cobble, Jill Ker Conway, Ellen Fitzpatrick, Sandra Fluke, Aileen Hernandez, Tracy Roosevelt, and Hilda Solis for "The 50th Anniversary of the Presidential Report on American Women," an afternoon conference and discussion at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.

The following day, October 15th, there will be a program at Radcliffe. Registration for that forum will be posted on September 12. You may check our website on September 12 for information and a link to Radcliffe's registration.

All forums are free and open to the public. Reservations for forums are strongly recommended. They guarantee a seat in the building but not the main hall. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors to the main hall open one hour before the program begins.
