A Discussion with Juliane Schäuble

Monday, May 22, 2023

Juliane Schäuble, U.S. correspondent for “Der Tagesspiegel” and Jill Greenlee, Associate Professor at Brandeis University, will discuss Schäuble’s recent book:

“Guns n’ Rosé – Konservative Frauen Erobern die USA” (Conservative Women Conquer the U.S.), written with Annett Meiritz

In the book, Schäuble writes: “Progressive feminism seems to have all the demographic trends on its side. Today’s twenty-somethings or thirty-somethings are becoming ever more leftist and diverse. Religious affiliation is declining. The traditional family is becoming less common because more people are single or single parents. Given that, conservative women would almost seem an anachronism. Yet as idiosyncratic as their world … may appear, their influence is felt in all areas of everyday life in America. They make their voices heard in every debate, every political decision, whether on abortion, taxes, censored schoolbooks, racism, or vaccine mandates.”

As the country is preparing for the next presidential elections, the German Consulate General Boston and the German American Business Council of Boston are looking forward to this conversation about the role of women in US politics.

Note: The book Guns n’ Rosé – Konservative Frauen Erobern die USA” (written with Annett Meiritz) is currently only available in German. The discussion will be held in English.

When: Monday, May 22nd at 6:00PM
Location: Goethe Institut Boston, 170 Beacon Street, Boston, MA 02116
complimentary, RSVP required
