An Historic Date…June 10, 2019
Marking the day, we celebrated the 100th Anniversary of Wisconsin ratifying the 19th Amendment. After viewing the 1995 PBS documentary One Woman, One Vote, we ask, “What is your commitment?”
The Community Talk Back was held at NO Studios in the Pabst Brewery Complex and was made possible with support from Rotary Club of Milwaukee along with Dr. Karen J. Maroda. Our gratitude…thank you.
WHY IT MATTERS
Equity among people is a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world.
In Wisconsin, men are 2.5 times more likely to be in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) occupations than women.
Although the number of women in the U.S. Congress has reached an all-time high, more women need those roles. If trends continue at the current rate, women will not hold an equal share of seats until the year 2117. We can’t wait that long…
