Tour Guide Tell All

The Brilliant and Bombastic Flo Kennedy

March 18, 2021

"When it came to...rhetorical style, Flo was a down and dirty kinda type...Let’s say the uncomfortable thing, let’s get up into our uncomfortable space, because that’s where we can start to move past, and start getting the real work done. And I think she acted on that in every facet of her life."

March is Women's History Month and our team is diving deep into the lives and legacies of a few incredible women from American History.  We continue our exploration of interesting women in history with Florynce Kennedy.  Florynce "Flo" Kennedy was a pivotal member of the Women's Liberation and Civil Rights movements in the 20th century and used her work as an activist and advocate to build a better world for women of all backgrounds.
