Event description
1920 - 2020 -The Year of the Woman: Come and hear the stories of 5 phenomenal women impacting the world of politics everyday.

About this Event

Women's participation in government and politics has been an ongoing struggle. Although they won the right to vote in 1920, significant growth in the number of women holding political office occurred only after the women's movement during the 1960's and early 1970's. The growing number of women in all levels of government represents , to a large degree, the greater voter turnout of women than men in recent decades. The panel will look at the struggle that women have undergone as they have moved from suffrage to representation.
