OUR NEXT EVENTS
Tuesday, January 26, 2021⋅7:00 – 8:00pm: When Women Won the Right to Vote: A History Unfinished This year we celebrate 100 Years of AAUW Harrisburg! Dr Lisa Tetrault, author of The Myth of Seneca Falls: Memory and the Women’s Suffrage Movement 1848-1898 and scholar of the movement, will focus on 1920 as the middle of a much larger story about the pursuit of voting rights, a struggle that is today unfinished and ongoing. AAUW Harrisburg partners with the Midtown Scholar Bookstore for this virtual presentation. Sign up here to join us.
See the AAUW Harrisburg Branch Calendar for other current activities.
EQUAL PAY DAY RALLY
No rally for 2020 – since neither PA House nor Senate were in session on March 31, AAUW did not plan a rally at the State Capitol this year. Instead, they are encouraging members to visit their legislators in their home offices.
On Monday, APRIL 8, 2019 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 at the Pennsylvania State Capitol Rotunda, AAUW Harrisburg joined members and friends of the American Association of University Women-PA, Business and Professional Women-Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Commission for Women, Women’s Law Project, Moms Rising and state legislators to rally in Harrisburg for a long overdue update to our state equal pay law.
HARRISBURG BOOK FESTIVAL
AAUW Harrisburg Branch was a Gold Sponsor of the 2019 Harrisburg Book Festival held on October 3-6 at the Midtown Scholar Bookstore in Harrisburg.
