To honor the 50th anniversary of Jane Jacob’s The Death and Life of Great American Cities, The Municipal Art Society of New York is hosting the Jane Jacobs Forum focusing on Women as Public Intellectuals. The forum will discuss three prominent female writers: Jane Jacobs, Rachel Carson (Silent Spring) and Betty Friedan (The Female Mystique) all of whom challenged the status quo.  Their voices contributed to discussions about urban planning, environmental responsibility and the role of women in society.  The forum will be moderated by Robin Pogrebin with five other panelists who will address the circumstances of these women’s successes and the role of women engaged in public critique today.

The event will be held on Tuesday, November 8th at The CUNY Graduate Center in The Elebash Hall at 6:30 – 8pm and reservations can be made here.
