The Friends Lecture Luncheon: “Gail Collins: Fifty Years for Women.” Gail Collins is a columnist for The New York Times, where she was the first woman ever to serve as editorial page editor for that paper. She is the accomplished author of Scorpion Tongues: Gossip, Celebrity and American Politics, and America’s Women. Her new book, When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present, picks up where her last book left off. Join us as Ms. Collins recounts the sea change that women have experienced, remembering the enormous strides and rare setbacks, in her own down-to-earth agenda-free style.
