On the morning of October 12th, Congressman Don Beyer will host his Fifth Annual Women’s Conference and Forum titled, Nevertheless, She Persisted, at George Mason University’s Arlington Campus (3351 Fairfax Drive; 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM).
In 2019 the fight for gender equality continues, and Virginia remains at center stage. During last year’s elections, a record number of women ran for and won elected office at every level. Now, one year later, Virginia women are persisting, refusing to let their voices be silenced, and demanding their seata at the table.
Come hear experts track the progress of passing an Equal Rights Amendment in Virginia, closing the gender-pay gap, and ensuring that democracy is representative of all people. *Free Admission, but limited space. Guests to be announced.
