AMES, Iowa -- Law professor and political commentator Susan Estrich will speak at Iowa State University on Wednesday, March 28, as part of Women's History Month.

Estrich became the first woman to head a national presidential campaign when she directed Michael Dukakis' election bid in 1988. She also was first woman president of the Harvard Law Review. Her books include "Real Rape," "Getting Away with Murder: How Politics is Destroying the Criminal Justice System" and the recently published "Sex and Power."

Estrich is a frequent guest on national news programs, including "Firing Line" and "60 Minutes." She is a featured commentator on Fox News.

Estrich's visit to Iowa State is hosted by the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics. While on campus, Estrich also will meet informally with Iowa State students and participate in the presentation of Carrie Chapman Catt Prize for Research on Women and Politics.
