Helen Bruton selected for the "100 Years, 100 Women" project

 


I'm excited to report that Helen Bruton has been selected as one of 100 women recognized by the "100 Years, 100 Women" project.  According to the website wchallenge.org, the project is a "10-week social media campaign to recognize 100 women leaders from the past 100 years to mark the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which extended the right to vote to women in United States."  The campaign began on Women's Equality Day on August 26 and runs through election day, next week.  The purpose of the campaign is to "motivate more women to vote in honor of these leaders who helped to get us to where we are today!"

Helen is one of ten women representing the decade of the 1930s, along with other luminaries like Dorothea Lange, Jane Addams, and Mary Jane McLeod Bethune.  What an honor! You can read what Carmen Chu, San Francisco Assessor and Co-Chair of the Covid-19 Economic Recovery Task Force, had to say about Helen Bruton here.

I encourage you to draw inspiration from these 100 remarkable women - and don't forget to VOTE!
