The Free to Be You and Me project was spearheaded by actress Marlo Thomas, with help from Gloria Steinem and a host of celebrities. Now more than 40 years later, a new book When We Were Free to Be:Looking Back at a Children's Classic and the Difference it Made, brings together celebrities, child behavior experts, authors and parents to inspire the next generation. Co-author and cultural historian Lori Rotskoff is here today to talk to us about this new and informative book.
