In 1999, PBS affiliate WTVP and Barb Drake, Peoria Journal Star reporter and Bradley alumna, interviewed Women’s Movement icon Betty Friedan. The 28-minute interview discussed Friedan’s childhood in Peoria, IL and how the community impacted her writing and actions that inspired a second Feminism wave in the United States.
