Vivian Rothstein was a founder of the Chicago Women's Liberation Union. In this short clip from the PBS documentary Young Blood, she talks about her 1967 trip to North Viet Nam during the American bombing. Vivian's experiences meeting Viet Namese women helped shape her ideas of how to organize the Chicago Women's Liberation Union.

Young Blood is from the Baby Boom Collection of the People's Century series and focuses on the 1960's. The "Baby Boom" collection focuses on the period of world history after 1945. The entire "People's Century" covers most of the 20th century. We give this series a high recommendation. You may purchase the entire series, individual collections or single videos from PBS here .
