WOMEN'S WAY Book Prize, honoring Madeleine Kunin

March 14, 2013 5:30 PM-8:00 PM

WOMEN'S WAY Book Prize, honoring Governor Madeleine Kunin

Join WOMEN'S WAY for the 2013 WOMEN'S WAY Book Prize honoring The New Feminist Agenda: Defining the Next Revolution for Women, Work, and Family by Governor Madeleine Kunin. We invite you to participate in this critical dialogue about the challenges facing working parents today, as well as the lack of meaningful progress in the areas of maternity leave, affordable child care, early education, workplace flexibility and elder care. Loraine Ballard Morrill of Clear Channel Media will moderate the discussion and former Governor Edward Rendell will announce Kunin.

About the Author:

Madeleine Kunin is the first female governor in Vermont and the only Jewish woman to be elected governor of a U.S. state. Her wide-spanning political career includes serving as the Governor of Vermont, the Deputy Secretary of Education and the Ambassador to Switzerland. She is the author of the award-winning book The New Feminist Agenda: Defining the Next Revolution for Women, Work, and Family (2012), as well as Pearls, Politics, and Power: How Women Can Win and Lead" (2008) and Living a Political Life (1995), which chronicles her career prior to joining the U.S. Department of Education.

About the Event:'

This year's Book Prize will be held on Thursday, March 14th at 5:30 PM in the Elaine C. Levitt Auditorium at the Gershamn Y. After the award presentation and discussion with the author, we invite guests to enjoy a networking reception and book signing. Thanks to the generous partnership of Glenmede, this event is free.

The WOMEN’S WAY Book Prize is awarded annually to an author who has made a significant contribution to furthering the dialogue about issues impacting women and girls.  For 36 years, WOMEN’S WAY has been the leading education, advocacy and grantmaking organization for women in the greater Philadelphia area. The Book Prize was created in honor of Ernesta Drinker Ballard, a WOMEN'S WAY founder, first president of its Board of Directors and an extraordinary champion for women and girls.
