March is Women's History Month

Women make history every day, but it is nice to have a month dedicated to celebrating the groundbreaking achievements of women past and present. And we don't want to forget the work that still needs to be done to gain gender equality in our professional and personal lives.

It's an appropriate time to announce that the League Board voted in February to join a grassroots effort to obtain permanent recognition of the achievements of Janet Gray Hayes, San Jose's first woman mayor and the first woman mayor of a major American city. Her accomplishments were many including ending an era of unplanned sprawling growth, modernizing the San Jose Police Department, advocating for open government and greater public access, and inspiring other women to seek elected office. We are proud to say she was a staunch member of our League.

We also want to call attention to some of our long-time members (see article below) who have been active leaders in our League for many years. This month is a good time to give them a big THANK YOU for their contributions to us and to the community.

Several events are coming up this month and, of course, don't forget to VOTE by MARCH 5 in the Primary Election. See you soon!

Diane McNutt, President
