This year will mark 90 years since women were granted the right to vote in the United States.
But advocates for women in power, such as Karen Valentia Clopton of the League of Women Voters of San Francisco, are quick to point out that even in liberal San Francisco, women are still a minority on the Board of Supervisors, on judicial benches and in the boardrooms of the tall buildings that make up The City’s famous skyline.
On Feb. 11, the League of Women Voters of San Francisco will honor five local women in leadership positions for their annual gala reception, “Women Who Could Be President.”
National Center for Lesbian Rights Executive Director Kate Kendell will one of the women honored. To find out more about the honorees and information on the awards reception, click here.
