Today is the 88th anniversary of women’s suffrage and delegates to the Democratic National Convention celebrated women today with dozens of events.
Click here to read my story in the Contra Costa Times. Pictured on the right are moms of two East Bay delegates; their daughters wanted to share the experience with their mothers.
In a few minutes, Sen. Hillary Clinton, the woman who has gotten closer to the U.S. presidency than any other woman in American history will speak to the delegates on the floor of the convention. Her supporters eagerly await her comments; there has been considerable confusion about how her delegates’ votes will be officially recognized.
Also, click below for a video of Rep. Ellen Tauscher talking about the Day of the Woman. I found her at a reception this afternoon for Californians in downtown Denver.
