Thank you to all who attended or sponsored the Women's Equality Day luncheon

held on Saturday, August 27th, hosted by the Friends of Susan B. Anthony,

at the Best Western Gateway Grand in Gainesville. 

 

Dr. Elaine Turner, Dean of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences at the University

of Florida, discussed the momentous impact of Title IX on women's education and

sports, in her address,  Fifty Years of Title IX: And Not Done Yet

This year, Sheila Payne was honored with the Friends of Susan B. Anthony Award

for her community work on behalf of labor and fair housing. Sheila remarked,

"Action is the only cure for despair. Being an activist is a form of

self-preservation of the heart. It has kept me from becoming a cynic." 

Her acceptance speech is linked here.

Longtime Volunteer and Co-Coordinator June Littler was also surprised to be 

honored with the first annual "June Littler Champion of Justice Award,"

for her countless years of tireless dedication and commitment to the Friends of Susan B. Anthony.
