Rosalynn Carter: In Her Own Voice

The former First Lady and I discuss the personal encounters that sparked her life-long advocacy of expanded mental health coverage, the resistance she encountered advocating for the Equal Rights Amendment, the backstory of the first federally funded National Women’s Conference, her advice for young girls and boys, growing up in the tiny town of Plains, Georgia, and her full partnership with Jimmy before, during, and after the White House.  

This conversation was conducted at The Carter Center in Atlanta in 2015 for the National Women’s Hall of Fame Oral History Project.
