Ladies for Liberty: Women Who Made a Difference in American History with John Blundell.

Throughout the United States’ history women have played an intrinsic role in the movement for liberty. In Ladies for Liberty, the title of both his book and his lecture, he combats the myth that women want and benefit from big government.  The close to thirty women he portrays believed that self-determination is a virtue and that individuals should be allowed to pursue their own ends free from the coercion of others.

John Blundell serves as a Visiting Fellow of The Heritage Foundation, Washington, DC. He is also the Distinguished Senior Fellow of the Institute of Economic Affairs, London, UK where he was Director General from 1993 through 2009. He is a past President of the Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University, Virginia and the Atlas Economic Research Foundation, Washington DC and serves on both boards of directors. He is a past President of the Charles G Koch Foundation, Vice President of the Mont Pelerin Society and a former board member of the Philadelphia Society. John’s latest book is Remembering Margaret Thatcher: Commemorations, Tributes and Assessments (2013)
