Join us Wednesday, July 28 at 7:00 PM on The Quad at Montrose School to celebrate The Rights of Women, the newly-published book by Erika Bachiochi P'20, '21, '23. We'll also welcome special guest Mary Ann Glendon, Learned Hand Professor of Harvard Law, emerita, and a former U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See.
Montrose is proud to co-sponsor and host this event, as Bachiochi is a featured author in our 12th grade Capstone course. Her latest research on 18th-century English philosopher Mary Wollstonecraft reveals the essence of what our school aims to teach young women today, that "one creates one's life through growth in wisdom and virtue, achieved through sustained intellectual and moral formation . . ."
In the book, Erika Bachiochi offers an original look at the development of feminism in the United States, advancing a vision of rights that rests upon our responsibilities to others. The Rights of Women provides a synthesis of ancient wisdom and modern political insight that locates the family’s vital work at the very center of personal and political self-government.
*Copies of The Rights of Women will also be available for purchase at the event.
