“Writing Women Out of the Public Sphere” (PPT) by Karen A. Ritzenhoff, Ph.D.

Linked below is the first of two PowerPoint presentations Dr. Karen A. Ritzenhoff wanted to share when she joined “If America Fails?” for the inaugural episode – “America’s Fascist Brew; Will America Fail? – the Sneak Peek,” on October 14th.  Due to technical difficulties, we were not able to share this PPT in the live event.  For the full PPT, please see link below.

Dr. Ritzenhoff highlights some aspects of The Handmaid’s Tale story that explore women’s role in the working world outside the home, in this presentation.  She centers on the role of language, news and access to information, with special attention to the role of journalism.

“The rights that we enjoy now are not the default status. The default status for anyone who is not white, straight, or male, as history shows, is actually to have no rights at all.”
