3/5/2014 MinneCulture

 

KFAI celebrates exceptional women during the month of March in recognition of International Women's Day. Tonight, MinneCulture presents an audio documentary entitled Rosalie Wahl: Minnesota's first female Supreme Court Justice.

In 1977, the Women's Movement scored a major victory with Roe v. Wade, but Congress failed to pass the Equal Rights Amendment. In Minnesota, a pro-life Catholic governor and a public defender, poet and mother of four would make state history when Rudy Perpich appointed Rosalie Wahl as Minnesota's first female Supreme Court Justice. Britt Aamodt examines one of Minnesota's most significant heroes in women's history. Featuring Lori Sturdevant, author of "Her Honor: Rosalie Wahl & the Minnesota Women's Movement," and Betty Wilson, author of "Rudy! The People's Governor."
