On October 23, 2014 the WGS Program at Boston University hosted a book reading and party celebrating Dr. Roberta Salper. Roberta is a Resident Scholar at the Women’s Studies Research Center, Brandeis University. Her book, Domestic Subversive: A Feminist’s Take on the Left 1960-1976 is “an intimate, riveting memoir about the making of a political radical during the upheaval of the 1960s. It is both a personal journey and an inside look at political movements that changed the world. Roberta Salper became one of the pioneers of a new field of study that would be known as Women’s Studies.” Source: Anaphora Literary Press
