Dr. Karen M. Kedrowski, Director of the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics and Professor of Political Science at Iowa State University, is the keynote speaker for Bridgewater College’s Constitution Day event held via Zoom on Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 5 p.m.

The event, “It’s Not Done: 100 Years of the Equal Rights Amendment,” will cover the history of the failed Equal Rights Amendment and Virginia’s key role in recent efforts to revive it. Seventy percent of Americans wrongly believe that the Constitution guarantees men and women equal rights and three-fourths support the ERA, but the ERA was first introduced nearly 100 years and has not yet been added to the Constitution.

Kedrowski holds a B.A. in political science, history and French from the University of Minnesota and an M.A. and Ph.D. in political science from University of Oklahoma. She joined Iowa State in January 2019. Prior, Kedrowski spent 24 years at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, S.C., where she rose from assistant professor to Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.

The lecture is free and accessible to the public. Register at bridgewater.edu/ConstitutionDay.
