ABOUT THE LWVW


The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influence public policy through education and advocacy.

The League of Women Voters has been steadily active through the years since its founding - always focused on voter services. Working on local, state and national issues, the local League had made its mark through study groups, consensus votes, local forums and debates.

ANNUAL MEETING ON JUNE 20th

 

The League of Women Voters of Winchester will hold its Annual Meeting on Saturday, June 20 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Masa Restaurant, 350 Cambridge Road (Horn Pond Shopping Center near the Winchester/Woburn line). 

Featured speakers Caryl Rivers and Rosalind Barnett are experts on gender issues and authors of The New Soft War on Women.  Why are women, who make up half the educated labor force, marginalized by attitudes that reflect subtle biases and barriers?  It’s sure to be a thoughtful and provocative commentary!

Brunch will be served at 10:00 ($20 cash or check made to LWVW), followed by guest speakers and the Annual Meeting
