The South Lives On In White Sororities

think.kera.org 0


When a college-age woman joins a sorority, she’s pledging values that reach back in time — and are inherently discriminatory. Scholar Margaret L. Freeman joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the hyperfeminine world of sorority life and how sororities contribute to maintaining southern social hierarchies. Her book is “Women of Discriminating Taste: White Sororities and the Making of American Ladyhood.”
