Fri Aug 27 2010On Women's Equality Day Women in Bay Area Ask: Just How Far Have We Come?
Fri Aug 27 2010Questioning Equality 90 Years After Passage of the 19th Amendment
The Bay Area is commemorating the 90th anniversary of women's suffrage this week with speakers, films, costumes, and concerns. Members of the national organization Radical Women put out a call on the occasion of Women's Equality Day this year saying, "It's time to reclaim and re-energize a fighting, militant feminist movement!"
In San Mateo, US Congresswomen Jackie Speier and Anna Eshoo warned that women's reproductive rights continue to be threatened. They held a reception attended by guests in voting-theme costumes in the San Mateo County History Museum. Speaking to celebrants in the museum's historic Rotunda Hall, Rep. Eshoo said that the fight for women's equality must continue, and encouraged women to consider what real equality means today, 90 years after women's suffrage.
The local chapter of Radical Women will gather to commemorate the anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment on Saturday, August 28th. The theme of their program will be "A Women's Rights Day Tribute to Immigrant Women in the Battle for a Better World" and will include a special film screening.
