TABOO (topics): that would be sex, money and politics


Dear Readers:

The YWCA of Metropolitan Chicago will host TABOO on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at 5:30pm at the Public Hotel in Chicago.

My longtime #GirlPolitics pal Christie Hefner will moderate. The panel will include Dr. Lauren Streicher (author of Love Sex Again), and Maggie Anderson, author of Our Black Year. No doubt, we’ll have fun and be provocative.

If you’re in-town, I hope you will join us. If not, let your friends who are know we’re around, in case they want to join in the fun.

All the best.


Hannah Solomon would be proud: Jewish Women Unite to Advance Women’s Political Power and Influence

Dear Readers:

In the tradition of great Chicago feminist leader Hannah Solomon, founder of the National Council of Jewish Women, Chicago Jewish activists will gather next week. I hope that, if you’re in-town and free, you will join us. This should be an inspiring, as well as instructive, evening. For more information, see the flyer-image below.

Best wishes.
