The Women’s Research Institute of Nevada at UNLV Fall 2008 Gender Research Series with Ruby Duncan

Sam Morris

The Women’s Research Institute of Nevada at UNLV presents the Fall 2008 Gender Research Series. Ruby Duncan is a local activist who is dedicated to improving conditions for women, children and the less fortunate in Las Vegas. Duncan had to leave her job after an injury and was forced to turn to welfare to support her family. After Nevada's welfare assistance was cut in 1971, Duncan began organizing welfare rights demonstrations and marches and has become a leader in the African American community.
