LA’s Leading Women’s Political Group Announces Honorees for Annual Event
National Women’s Political Caucus – LA Westside Chapter to
Honor Twelve Remarkable Women at Gala Event
(Los Angeles, CA) – Twelve accomplished women in California and Los Angeles politics, including California Attorney General Kamala Harris and Assemblymembers Holly Mitchell and Betsy Butler, will be honored at the National Women’s Political Caucus, LA-Westside’s annual “Calendar Event,” the group announced today. The honorees, which will all appear in the NWPC LA-Westside 2012 Remarkable Women’s Calendar, are scheduled to be in attendance at the gala, which will take place October 20, 2011 at The Mark for Events in Los Angeles.
“The women selected to appear in NWPC-LA Westside’s 2012 calendar are inspirational,” said NWPC LA Westside President Lindsay Bubar. “By working to improve their communities through political action, these amazing women demonstrate why it is so important that we continue to strive for gender equity in politics.
“Women represent more than half of the population, but less than a quarter of people serving in elected office,” continued Bubar. “We have a long way to go to achieve true equality and these 12 remarkable women are leading the way to a better future.”
In addition to celebrating female elected leaders such as Attorney General Harris and Assemblymembers Mitchell and Butler, NWPC-LA Westside’s 2012 “Remarkable Women” calendar features women who engage in politics through a variety of avenues, including consulting, community organizing and non-profit work. Honorees to be featured in the 2012 calendar include:
