I'm excited to report to you Gloria Steinem and Dolores Huerta will headline the Women, Money, and Power Summit luncheon in Washington, DC, on Monday, October 5, 2009. 

Yes, the Summit is bringing together a great combination of feminist leaders, thinkers, speakers and activists as well as top political leaders. Trust me, you won't want to miss it.  Already registrations are coming in from over 18 states. Plus, the list of women's organizations co-sponsoring the Summit is growing rapidly.

The Summit has just developed a new Website. Take a look at the Summit agenda in development. You will see it is highly focused on new strategies for women to gain equal political power and representation, economic empowerment, women workers, reducing violence against women, and winning a larger share of the national budget for feminist issues and programs. We are living in a very turbulent time full of promise and challenges. We need to come together to recharge our batteries, exchange ideas, and maximize our strengths.

The Summit is being held on a Sunday and Monday (October 4th-5th) and there will be a Congressional Visit Day on Tuesday (October 6th).  For those who can stay through Tuesday, the Washington Court Hotel is only two blocks from the Capitol. As many of us as possible must weigh in with our Representatives and Senators on key issues.

Please register today for what will be a cutting-edge feminist summit long overdue.

For Equality and Justice,
Eleanor Smeal
