RE: Women’s Equality Day Reformed - Friday, August 5, 2016 in White Plains, NY;
Ceremony 12 Noon, Sharp! to 1:30 p.m. Light refreshments follow.
Ceremony to be held at the Westchester County Michaelian Building, 8th floor large Conference Room,
148 Martine Avenue & Court Street, White Plains.
This year, the 96th Anniversary of women’s voting rights, a woman is a major party nominee for President of the United States, but what woman and for what does she stand?
This 2016 Women’s Equality Day Reformed theme is Let Pro-Life Feminist Voices Speak on Life’s Beginning and Life’s End! The day will challenge the political tactics of the status quo: exposing efforts to silence free speech by shutting down speech in the classroom and on our college campuses; attempting to silence opposing citizen groups via manipulation (IRS scandal); exposing the legislative vote by “progressives” against conscience protections for all; speaking against standards and medical oversight for abortion clinics for the protection of women, and promoting physician-assisted and other-assisted suicide under the guise of compassionate care for the dying.
Women’s Equality Day Reformed will hold its 15th annual commemoration of the 19th Amendment’s granting of women’s voting rights August 26, 1920. The day’s events will focus on the dignity of all human life and the pivotal role women play in society’s understanding of the needs of the most vulnerable among us: pregnant women, the child in the womb, the frail, sick and elderly. Maria McFadden Maffucci of Mamaroneck is the 2016 Woman of the Year and recipient of this year’s Mott-Stanton-Anthony Award! She is President of The Human Life Foundation, Inc., and Editor of The Human Life Review.
The day’s Keynote speaker will be Norine R. DiCarlo. R.N., MA, former Assistant Director of Nursing in the Department of Psychiatry at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx who will speak on “Hope and Ambivalence in the Suicidal Patient”.
