Program Topic/Speaker:

Meet the 23nd Annual Feminist Essay Contest Winners!

 

In honor of Women's History Month, we will present awards and checks to the wonderful students who submitted winning entries to our annual Feminist Essay Contest. Expect to be invigorated by the enthusiasm of the next generation of feminists —girls and boys alike. Show them the recognition they deserve in taking on this critical topic, and come out to represent our chapter as we salute the students, their families and their teachers. This year’s Essay Contest topic was:

There are currently 99 female members of Congress out of 535 members. Of that number, there are 20 female Senators (20% of the total) and 79 female House members (18.2% of the total). That’s only 18.5% of Congress representing a country where approximately 51% of the population is female. Why is this? In 300 words or less, please consider the following:

“You are running for the U.S. Senate or the House of Representatives.
1. What women's rights issues would be on your platform?
2. What obstacles are faced by female candidates?
3. What can be done to overcome these obstacles?”

Apart from being extremely memorable for the students, the evening is inspiring and affirming for those who attend. Chapter members have often said it is one of their favorite program meetings of the year! Please join us!!


Meetings include speaker, refreshments, announcments and letter-writing activity.
Meetings open to members and nonmembers.

I always feel the movement is a sort of mosaic.
Each of us puts in one little stone,
and then you get a great mosaic at the end.
