Join us as author Rosemarie Day discusses her book Marching Toward Coverage: How Women Can Lead the Fight for Universal Healthcare (Beacon Press, 2020). With 28 million Americans uninsured, and millions more who can’t afford their coverage, Day asks the fundamental question: Can we, as a nation, do better? Day believes we can and will—once women begin to engage collectively around this topic. This discussion will focus on galvanizing women to take action to make healthcare a right in the US.

Deb Gordon, author of The Healthcare Consumer's Manifestowill serve as moderator for this talk and Emily Shield of the Cambridge Commission on the Status of Women will provide an introduction.
