2017 Women's Equality Day Celebration

  • Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall 3313 Wade Avenue Raleigh, NC, 27607 United States (map)

Women’s Equality Day commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote. Every August we host this event to honor the women who hold elected office for their service to federal, state, and local government. The reception includes wine and hors d' ouevres, music provided by Meredith College students, and a brief program to celebrate the women’s suffrage movement and recognize the women elected in our community.
