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.

EQUAL

MEANS

EQUAL

http://equalmeansequal.com/ 


Equal Means Equal is a documentary film that takes an unvarnished look at where women find themselves today. The film weaves multiple seemingly disparate issues together to make the case that a lack of full legal equality is having a profound impact on American women’s lives.
 

SENECA FALLS
CONVENTION

 

July 19 and 20, 1848

 

Declaration of Rights
and Sentiments


The organizers of the Seneca Falls Convention were Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Martha Coffin Wright, Jane Hunt, and Mary Ann McClintock. On July 19, 1848, they stood before 300 curious people and presented a Declaration of Rights and Sentiments. That document, modeled after the Declaration of Independence, declared that all men and women are created equal. It demanded equal access to all means of employment and the ministry. And it insisted that women had "the duty…to secure to themselves their sacred right of franchise," or suffrage (the right to vote).
 

Sojourner Truth


Sojourner Truth Speaks at The Seneca Falls Woman's Convention 1848

Sojourner Truth was perhaps the most famous African-American woman in 19th century America. For over forty years she traveled the country as a forceful and passionate advocate for the dispossessed, using her quick wit and fearless tongue to fight for human rights.

Intimate, personalized portrait of women of the 1960s through the eyes of one colorful class that graduated in 1969 - same year as Hillary Clinton - and recently turned 65, starting to explore the New Old Age. At a time when these Boomers' parents were asking less of themselves, many of these distinguished citizens are asking more, feeling a Third Wind. Where will it take them? Some are determined to keep making waves. The trigger for these revelations/reminiscences is the class's yearbook. Each photo was a collaboration with a sexy Turkish artist, is full of the 60s spirit of risk, rebelliousness, creativity.  Indeed, this yearbook wasn't a book at all. The portraits came to each alumna loose leaf, in a box. Hence our metaphoric title: Unboxed!
