Our final chapter meeting of the semester will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the nineteenth amendment (women’s suffrage).
Speaker: Barbara Winslow, a member of the retiree chapter and professor emerita at Brooklyn College, will talk on “Upending the History of Women’s Suffrage: Bringing Race, Class and Empire to the Fore.”
A historian of women’s activism, Prof. Winslow has authored or edited several books including Shirley Chisholm: Catalyst for Change, Clio in the Classroom: A Guide for Teaching U.S. Women’s History (co-editor), Reshaping Women’s History: Voices of Non-Traditional Women Historians (editor) and Sylvia Pank-hurst: Sexual Politics and Political Activism.
We’ll also be honoring three women who are retiring from the PSC staff whose union work has made such a difference over the decades for PSC members – Executive Director Debbie Bell, Membership Director Diana Rosato, and Policy and Research Director, Kate Pfordresher. We’re making them honorary members of our chapter.

1 – 3 pm, Monday, June 8th.
