Tonight, Shannon welcomes three women’s rights activists who have been active in government relations in the Commonwealth of Virginia for decades: Donna Granski, Candy Graham, and Eileen Davis. The four women will have a roundtable discussion about the historical significance of a women’s suffrage rally held on the steps of the Virginia Capitol 100 years ago, as well as the progression of the issues being addressed at that time - many of which are still being heatedly debated.
The women will discuss an upcoming series of events planned to commemorate the centennial anniversary of that women’s rights rally – a joint venture between The American Association of University Women, The League of Women Voters, The National Organization for Women, and Women Matter. Tonight’s show will provide details about the upcoming events and a discussion of the quest for equal rights for women in the United States - especially those relating to the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment.
