Our theme for this season’s programs is Year of the Woman. Why? The 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which at long last recognized that women have the right to vote, passed 100 years ago in 1919. It was ratified in 1920. So, our program year spans the exact months during which our nation 100 years ago took this overdue and major step towards a more perfect union. Accordingly, every speaker and panelist we’ll hear from during this program season will be a woman who plays a leadership role in making our region and nation more vibrant, more innovative and more just.
