Welcome to WOMEN IN CALIFORNIA POLITICS
WICP is preserving the history of the first 100 years of women elected to serve in the California Legislature and other important women that have shaped the ever-changing political landscape of California. “Her Words”, the women’s oral history project, of Women In California Politics Foundation is producing high-quality videotapes of oral history interviews in intimate, personal settings with those we are still blessed to have with us. Time is of the essence as some of these amazing women are in their 80’s & 90’s. With the support of our Founders we are well on our way. We would like to complete at least fifty interviews by the end of 2020! The fundraising has begun and we are off to a great start with some contributors having already secured their title as Centennial Founders. We really need your support now. You too can become a part of history by making a tax-deductible contribution today.
Women In California Politics Foundation is proud of successful colaborations with the Center for California and grant awards that have resulted in protecting and preserving the history of the women that have made so many positive advances for the betterment of the people of the state of California.
I sincerely hope that you are as excited about our continued success as I am, and that you will join us in creating this legacy and making history as we approach our 100 year celebration of women serving in the California Legislature!
With your support, I know that WOMEN IN CALIFORNIA POLITICS FOUNDATION will also endure the test of time.
