CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Julie Husband, associate professor of languages and literatures at the University of Northern Iowa, will give a presentation "Embodying Equal Rights: Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass, 1868-1870," at noon, Monday, Nov. 5, as part of the Current Research on Women and Gender (CROW) Forum. The forum will be held at the Center for Multicultural Education, Room 109A, on the UNI campus.

Husband's talk will focus on Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass, two of the main actors in the women's rights movement and black civil rights movement. The presentation will detail how the leaders responded to such threats as stereotypes in cartoons and popular literature of their time.
