Kathryn Craft at Paperback II Meeting

PPBII book group met on Tuesday, March 15th at Deb Spinney’s home. We read “The Art of IMG_4892Falling” by Kathryn Craft. We got to meet the author at Deb’s home. Katherine was very friendly, informative and had some wonderful stories to tell us about how she came about to write this book. She led most of the discussions and she was very interested in our opinions & questions. Of course we had her sign our books! There were 11 AAUW members in attendance plus the author. We all had a great time and so did Kathryn Craft. Many thanks to Deb Spinney for opening her home to “meet the author”.

Why Public Policy in AAUW?

If we women don’t advocate for issues that directly affect our lives then who will? Who else can speak from first-hand experience about the struggles and issues that face us? Who else can do it better? Revisit our mission and diversity statement and our purpose. You can find these in front of any yearbook. You can get involved on any level from joining Two-Minute Activist at, registering new voters, writing letters to the editor (for which there are samples), or even lobbying your representatives (with help). There is strength in numbers. Let us take up our pens, raise our voices, tweet and post. If not now, when?  Randi L. Blauth, Co-Chair, Public Policy

Definition: Feminism (It may not be what you had been thinking)

: the belief that men & women should have equal rights & opportunities
: organized activity in support of women’s rights and interests
: the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes
