Watch: Charlotte Bunch Reflects on the Complexities of the Women's Movement

Coming out as a lesbian during the women's liberation was an act that showed fearlessness and unity among women like Bunch who fought for their rights.


Charlotte Bunch has been a leader in the women's and gay rights movements for decades. She is the founder of the Center for Women's Global Leadership, a noted author in her field, and is an inductee in the esteemed National Women's Hall of Fame. Needless to say, Bunch has faced plenty of forks in the road, but it is that activist spirit deep within her that continues to carry the torch for women today. 

Watch as she discusses those initial moments in the women's movement when the process of coming out as a lesbian was deeply defended to protect the future of the movement.

As a part of the Makers project, an initiative by PBS and AOL that collects moments in herstory where women like Bunch reflect on their tribulations, successes and ultimate journeys, Charlotte Bunch is a leading lady we salute and respect.
