Freeholders Celebrate Women’s Equality Day

This week, residents from across Bergen County celebrated Women’s Equality Day which marks the enactment of  the 19th Amendment to the Constitution which gave women the right to vote. Freeholder Vice-Chairwoman Joan Voss (D-Fort Lee), Freeholder Tracy Zur (D-Franklin Lakes), and Freeholder Maura DeNicola (R-Franklin Lakes) joined female elected officials and guest speakers in marking the occasion at Bergen Community College for a crowd of over 100 women of all ages.

Among the guest speakers was Professor Liz Abzug, daughter of the late Congresswoman Bella Abzug who was a noted leader in the Feminist Movement both in the United States and Internationally.  The event was presented by the League of Women Voters of Northern Valley and was co-sponsored by the Women’s Institute at Bergen Community College, UniteWomen.Org, Women’s Rights Information Center, Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey, and the Bergen County Commission on the Status of Women.
