Then-Rep. Pat Schroeder discusses her retirement at a news conference in the House studio.
Today, in retirement, she’s finally in control. “I get to see my grandchildren,” said the mother of two, who will teach a course on the philosophy of feminism at Rollins College this fall, and is still active in several organizations like Common Cause, the Marguerite Casey Foundation, and English-Speaking Union of the United States. “[And] I will continue to learn, even at 72.”
