President's Message

Anne C. Tremblay
WLALA President 2013-2014

Anne TremblayI think the girl who is able to earn her own living and pay her own way should be as happy as anybody on earth. The sense of independence and security is very sweet.

-Susan B. Anthony

In July there is much to celebrate in American History and the history of American women.  On July 4th we commemorate the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and on July 19th the birth of the Women's Rights Movement in 1848.  The annual fireworks and BBQs are regular reminders of Independence Day but the events of 1848 may be more difficult to recall – except for some of us history majors.  July 19th – 20th marks the 166th anniversary of the first American women’s rights convention.  In Seneca Falls, New York, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott led the charge as hundreds of women (and men) joined together to protest the social, political and economic discrimination against and unequal treatment of American women.  The convention marked the first public declarations in favor of women’s suffrage.  We have come a long way (baby!), yet as so many statistics and news stories remind us and as several recent WLALA programs have highlighted, we still have a way to go before achieving true equality.
