Women Making Their Mark on the Capitol — Lessons from the Road (19th Amendment Speaker Series)
Presented by: Los Angeles County Bar Association, the National Association of Women Judges, and Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles

One hundred years after the passage of the 19th Amendment, women represent over half the nation’s population, yet they comprise a little over 30% of the nation’s state legislatures, and just 25% of female legislators are women of color. How can the promise of the 19th Amendment be fulfilled if women continue to be underrepresented in state government?

Join us as we hear from two women who are making their voices heard in Sacramento: Controller Betty Yee, Assemblymember Sydney Kamlager and Assemblymember Eloise Gomez Reyes. The program will be moderated by Valerie McGinty, Founder and President of FundHer, a political action committee dedicated to reaching gender parity throughout our nation’s capitols, and the Honorable Nicole Bershon, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge. Ms. McGinty will explore with our panelists the unique challenges female candidates of color face when running for office. Judge Bershon will lead a discussion with the panelists about their efforts to make women’s voices heard in Sacramento.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from our state’s leaders as they navigate the halls of the Capitol.


Panelists: Controller Betty Yee, Assemblymember Sydney Kamlager and Assemblymember Eloise Gomez Reyes
