A Woman’s Voice
A Woman’s Voice is a series of talks given by women with a passion. The talks provide an opportunity for women to freely voice their ideas and causes that they feel passionately about in a space unencumbered by external structures.
The Hillside Club:
The Hillside Club was founded in 1897 by a group of Berkeley women who wished to protect the hills of their town from "unsightly grading and the building of unsuitable and disfiguring houses." Since that time it has been a social center for cultural and artistic programs. Their regular events include community events, concerts, talks, dances, art shows, movies, and much more. http://www.hillsideclub.org
