Female Representation and Women's Statue Reception (San Francisco)

Female Representation and Women's Statue Reception
Monday, November 6, 6:30 PM - 8 PM, San Francisco

Female Representation legislation recently introduced by Supervisor Mark Farrell sets a policy goal of 30% female representation by 2020 and install the first full-sized statue of a culturally significant woman in San Francisco, Maya Angelou.  Led by Supervisor Farrell's two female Legislative Aides, Kanishka Karunaratne and Margaux Kelly, we want to change what all women experience in our public spaces.  We know that when young women see other women in leadership positions they raise their aspirations and start believing they to can lead – the Maya Angelou statue will help us achieve this.  Please join this event and help spread the word about the legislation and statue on Monday, October 23rd from 6:30 - 8PM at Swig (561 Geary St @ Taylor St).  Former US Treasurer Rosie Rios who is leading the effort to put a woman on the US currency will be our featured guest speaker for the evening.  Join us in highlighting the importance of female representation on boards and commissions and first-in-the-nation statue of Maya Angelou.  Our goal for the evening is to meet our final fundraising objective of $95,000 and we want to meet it in small contributions, as little as $5.
