The picture is from the Women’s Equality Through Time event in Durham last year. The event was organized with a coalition of organizations, including NC NOW, Action NC, NC4ERA, WomenNC. NC NOW did a skit on Women’s History Through Time which NC4ERA lead Marena Groll put together. Triangle NOW president Audrey Muck and Chapel Hill president Molly McKinney read stanzas of a Maya Angelou poem, “Phenomenal Woman,” and the rest of us walked across in front of the podium with items related to the women they announced in between the stanzas. Wendy Michener and Marena Groll got the items together for us and kept us moving. Unfortunately we’re missing Wendy and some other helpers from it.

Read about that excellent event in Durham at https://northcarolinanow.wordpress.com/2015/08/30/womens-equality-through-time-event-drew-several-hundreds/. See the poem, the famous women, and the items we used at https://northcarolinanow.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/nc-now-skit-final.pdf. This really was such a fun and invigorating event last year!
