SYNAPSE (UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SAN FRANCISCO) -- Davis channeled her once strident political fervor into a thoughtful look at the history of the U.S. women’s movement and some recommendations for women voters today. Although women’s studies programs and centers are essential, Davis said, the very existence of International Women’s Week is a comment on the fact that women’s history is not normally taught in elementary schools.

“We ought to speak about and learn about women 365 days a year,” said Davis, who teaches women’s and ethnic studies at San Francisco State University.
