October Meeting:
Jocasta Boone challenged us to take action!
Jocasta blessed us with an enthusiastic and energetic presentation that was both sobering and motivating. Yes, the statistics for women in politics are not what we would like to see, but there is certainly room for more women to become involved at all levels of the political sphere! Thank you for reminding us to step up and take action! Thank you also for showing us that much of what we are doing at the WBN in terms of empowering women is right on!

Wednesday October 24, 2018 - Style Boutique/Peterborough Fire Extinguishers
