PRESIDENT'S REPORT

This is my first report since I've had the honor of assuming the Presidency of VFA, succeeding Jacqui Ceballos who founded the organization and has been its only president and most passionate guiding spirit for 25 years.  She continues to run the office which typically includes warm and robust communications with the wider feminist community.  She is still the face of VFA and hers are difficult, if not impossible shoes to fill.

So, mindful of her legacy and free-spirited leadership, I decided to follow my own style--which is dramatically different from hers--and hoped for the best.

PINK TAX

WHY WOMEN"S PRODUCTS COST MORE

The so-called "Pink Tax" is leaving some shoppers frustrated. A product marketed to women cost more than the same product targeted towards men.

She's
Beautiful
When
She's
Angry

 

Mary Dore,
Director/ Producer

 

 


Resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women’s movement from 1966 to 1971.   SHE’S BEAUTIFUL takes us from the founding of NOW, with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of W.I.T.C.H. (Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell!).  Artfully combining dramatizations, performance and archival imagery, the film recounts the stories of women who fought for their own equality, and in the process created a world-wide revolution.

Help Preserve The Murray House

Washington (March 25, 2015) – The National Trust for Historic Preservation has named the childhood home of Rev. Dr. Pauli Murray, in Durham, N.C., its newest National Treasure.  A leader in the American civil and women’s rights movements, Murray was also co-founder of the National Organization for Women, and the first African American women to be ordained an Episcopal priest.  The Trust named the Murray house a national treasure to ensure her rich legacy is upheld and to assist in its preservation so the site can operate as a center for social justice programming.
