Regional AAUW Meeting Scheduled

On Saturday, March 16th, the Taunton branch of the AAUW (American Association of University Women) will meet at 12:00 noon at Hong Kong City on Broadway in Taunton.

This will be a luncheon/book discussion meeting. Those attending will discuss: Sisters in Law: How Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg Went to the Supreme Court and Changed the World, by author Linda Hirshman (2016). Hirshman’s dual biography includes revealing stories of how these trailblazers fought for their own recognition in a male-dominated profession—battles that would ultimately benefit every American woman. She also makes clear how these two justices have shaped the legal framework of modern feminism, including employment discrimination, abortion, affirmative action, sexual harassment, and many other issues crucial to women’s lives.

AAUW membership is open to any graduate holding an associate or equivalent, baccalaureate of higher degree from a qualified educational institution. Undergraduates may become AAUW affiliate members. For more information about the Taunton Area Branch of the AAUW, contact Rosemarie Buote, Vice-President of Membership, at 508-669-5069.
