September 10, 2020 Women Excelling Monthly Meeting
Women Excelling is proud to present S. Whitney Rahman, “100 Years Since Women’s Suffrage”. Whitney will discuss strides made by women – and setbacks experienced by women — since attaining the right to vote in 1920. By understanding the past, we can more clearly address the problems of the future, as we move into our next chapter. By understanding our history, we can help each other to become effective leaders.
