Since 1916, when the first woman was elected to the US Congress, fewer than 10 percent of all members have been women. Why is this number so extraordinarily small? And how has the presence of women in the electoral arena changed over the past hundred years? The League of Women Voters welcomes Barbara Palmer, co-author of Women and Congressional Elections: A Century of Change to Dine & Dish on Friday, Sept 28th from 5:30-7pm at Sa Bai Asian Cuisine on the corner of Fifth & Jefferson Streets.
Join Barbara in a discussion about the unexpected consequences that shape the integration of women into political offices. Heavy appetizers, wine and a chocolate buffet will round out the evening. Pay online using the PayPal link. Questions? Call the League Office at 228-4041.
