Ellen Bravo "Again and Again" Book Reading & Workshop

Thursday, September 24, 2015 - 11:00am to 1:45pm

Thousand Oaks Room, University Student Union

Ellen Bravo was born in Cleveland but has lived in Wisconsin long enough to be a diehard Green Bay Packers fan and say “c’ once” and “you bet.” A lifelong activist, she is the former director of 9to5 (the group that inspired the movie,) and current head of Family Values @ Work, a network of state coalitions working for family-friendly policies.

Ellen is the award-winning writer of three non-fiction books, the most recent being Taking on the Big Boys, or Why Feminism is Good for Families, Business and the Nation. Among her commendations is a Ford Foundation Visionary award. A business editor once described her as “moving, witty and sometimes bawdy.”
