VFA's St. Louis Event on September 27, 2014 was a Success!

 

REPORTS FROM SEPTEMBER 27TH
ST. LOUIS EVENT
 

 
It was so illuminating and inspiring to hear about and from women who have done so much for the labor union movement. The women were thrilled to be honored and receive VFA medals. I was proud to congratulate many of them personally. 
 
The event was a success on many fronts--it was clearly in keeping with VFA's to uncover our history, educate everyone about it and honor those who have made a difference.  And it was fun. I am so glad I went from New York to this very successful and well-run event.

education, appreciation and warmth. There was a great deal of candor from the speakers and the audience was thrilled.  The excitement was not only about the speakers, but the audience filled with powerful and acco

Click Image for Merillee's Bio

MERRILLEE DOLAN died suddenly at her home in Albuquerque, New Mexico on November 5th.  She was 73 years old. I met her at the first national NOW conference in Atlanta , Georgia in 1968. We nominated each other to the NOW board, and we served with Betty Friedan, Muriel Fox and other great feminists for several terms.  Over the years we kept in touch, and she was a founding member of  VFA. In July she attended NOW’s national conference in Albuquerque, and, again by phone, I introduced her to VFA board member, Grace Welch, from New York.  I’m thankful to Jenny White of Albuqurque, for informing me of the death of our dear friend.  To read about Merrillee’s fascinating and important life, check out her bio…Jacqui

Florida Women’s Hall of Famer
Nikki Beare
dies at 86

 

more to follow shortly

Journalism introduces reporters to many ideas. It introduced Nikki Beare to feminism and a long career as one of Florida’s leading activists.

A one-time Miami News reporter, Beare helped found the Miami-Dade County chapter of the National Organization of Women (N.O.W), hosted Florida’s first radio talk show for women, founded a women’s newspaper and helped lead the unsuccessful effort to ratify the ERA Amendment in Florida.

In 1994, she was inducted into the Florida Women’s Hall of Fame.
