December Luncheon Meeting
Viewpoint on Sexist Language (Lona Wyatt)
The next two months -- November and December -- feature League activities to suit every taste. I encourage all of you to come, and feast.
We have, first, a general meeting on November 10. We'll view the film, An Act of Congress, which will show us how bills move through Congress. Some of you may have seen this film on PBS last year, but this is the first chance we've had to use it for a League meeting. The importance of this film is twofold: to help us better understand how Congress operates -- if we don't know the process we can't have any influence; and to move from a discussion of Congressional action to action in our own State legislature.
Out here in the middle of the Pacific we tend to focus on our own island issues. Congress is 6,000 miles and a world away. But because acts of Congress affect us all, this Act of Congress is a film no one should miss. **November 10, McCully-Moiliili Library, 9:30 am**
We also have fun lined up. There will be a wine and cheese get-acquainted party on November 19. This is a great opportunity to meet old friends and
make new ones while learning about League. We especially invite those who work downtown to make this an after-work stop on the way home.
And -- to start off the holiday season, our annual Christmas luncheon
on December 11 will feature two very special women. Our topic is the affect of Reagan Administration policies on women, and our speakers are Carla Coray (League member, Republican committeewoman and member of the State Reapportionment Commission) and Patsy Mink (former Democratic representative to Congress, and recent chair of the Americans for Democratic Action). It should be an exciting program, one to provoke questions and stimulate discussion.
Our activities are planned for you. Come, and enjoy.
