Judith Nies: Working Girl in the 60s

Listen
AIR DATE: April 19, 2010

During the 1960s, Judith Nies was a speech writer building her career on Capitol Hill. Then one day, her husband slapped an FBI file on the table... with Judith's name on it. Judith Nies looks back on a career facing investigations, sexism, and her move to change the workplace. We look at the sixties and what barriers women face at work today.

She will be speaking with playwright Lavonne Mueller and author Timothy O'Grady on Thursday, April 29, at 7 p.m. at UNLV's Barrick Museum Auditorium. The event is put on by UNLV's Black Mountain Institute (BMI). Guest:
Judith Nies, Kluge Fellow, BMI, UNLV
