It's election time - time to brush up on our history and act on our right to vote!

Our speaker will be Virginia Elwood-Akers, a Women Studies Subject Specialist for the Library at CSU Northridge for 30 years, and author of two books on women's history, "Women War Correspondents in the Vietnam War, 1961-1975," which came out in 1988, and a biography of a suffragist and founder of the women's club movement, "Caroline Severance," which came out in 2010.  

Virginia will address why the subject area of Women Studies was created in the 1970's at the universities, how women war correspondents are a good example of why there is such a subject area, and Caroline Severance - who she was, and why she is important in American history.  

It should be an informative and entertaining talk - hope to see you there!
