FOUNDERS AWARD RECEPTION
CONVERSATION AND BOOK SIGNING
Join WISC, Ellen Malcolm and Teresa Leger de Fernandez as we pose the questions:

In 1985, aware of the near-total absence of women in Congress, Ellen R. Malcolm launched EMILY’s List, a powerhouse political organization that seeks to ignite change by getting women elected to office.
