Fashion Show Opens Women's History Week

Women's History Week, scheduled for the week of March 6, will be preceded by a fund-raising event to finance the week's activities which will all be free to the public.

A fashion show entitled "FASHIONS BY NAKE'U" will be held at the Empress Restaurant in the Cultural Center on February 27 at noon. The tickets sell for $16.00 and will include lunch at noon with the fashion show to follow at 1:00 p.m.

Those interested in attending this event and/or supporting Women's History Week activities can call Yoshiko Hamada, 521-4849r or 395-1414b.

The activities for the week are in the process of being planned and organized and will include exhibits and special programs and activities in schools. The culminating event will be a historical pageant by Wendell Silver on Saturday, March 12 at 3:00 p.m. The place for this event had not been selected by press time.


Marion Saunders, League representative on the Women's History Week committee, announced that League has purchased a recording entitled "Voices of Women in American History." This is a 33 rpm record of quotations from notable women in American history with biographical introductions.

Among the women whose quotations appear in the recording are Carrie Chapman Cutt, Jane Addams, Mother Jones, Emma Goldman, Margaret Sanger, Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Friedan, Margaret Mead and Eleanor Holmes Norton.

The recording is available for use free of charge to all groups and schools. Arrangements can be made by calling the League office or Marion Saunders, ph. 988-2635.
