Inductee Rosalynn Carter Oral History Interview

Merrill Amos with Rosalynn Carter 6-10-15

Michael Schulder speaks with former First Lady, Rosalynn Carter, for the National Women’s Hall of Fame oral history project. Mrs. Carter shares stories from her active role in the women’s rights movement, the resistance she encountered advocating for the Equal Rights Amendment, the backstory of the first federally funded National Women’s Conference, the personal encounters that triggered her early advocacy of mental health coverage, the biggest disappointment in her life, her advice for young girls and boys, and her days growing up in Plains, Georgia. As you’ll hear, Mrs. Carter’s full immersion in the issues she cares most about continues, today, at the age of 87.
