    Headshot of Natalie Eve Garrett, smilingBook cover with the text \Special Guest Speaker: Natalie Eve Garrett is an artist and a writer. She's the editor of THE LONELY STORIES, a cathartic collection of personal essays from 22 celebrated writers (including two Yale Women) exploring the joys and struggles of being alone, out now from Catapult. She's also the editor of EAT JOY (Catapult, 2019), a collection of stories exploring how food can help us cope in dark times, and THE ARTISTS' AND WRITERS' COOKBOOK (pH Books, 2016). A graduate of Yale University and the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design, Natalie lives with her husband and two children in a town just outside DC, along the Potomac River.

    If you’re feeling lonely or if you’ve ever felt unseen, if you’re emboldened by solitude or secretly longing for it: Welcome to The Lonely Stories. This cathartic collection of essays illuminates an experience that so few of us openly discuss. Some stories are heartbreaking, such as Jesmyn Ward’s reckoning with the loss of her husband and Dina Nayeri’s reflection on immigrating to a foreign country. Others are witty, such as Lev Grossman’s rueful tale of heading to the woods or Anthony Doerr’s struggles with internet addiction. Still others celebrate the clarity of solitude, like Claire Dederer’s journey toward sobriety and Lidia Yuknavitch’s sensual look at desire. Thoughtful and affirming, The Lonely Stories reveals the complexities of an emotion we’ve all felt—reminding us that we're not alone. 

    Join a community of YaleWomen writers on Zoom to share successes and challenges, exchange tips on the craft and business of writing, and remind ourselves that all of our stories matter. All writers are welcome, regardless of genre, medium, or level of experience.

    Yale Then & Now: Women's Athletics

    Register with Yale for this event by clicking here.


    In honor of the final day of Women's History Month, please join us as we explore the history of women's athletics at Yale.

    Today, Yale has a female athletic director, and female students and alumni who have gone on to national recognition as well as the Olympics. But the path was far from smooth. How did women's athletics evolve at Yale over the years, from those early days after the passing of Title IX in 1972, and up through the 80's, 90's, and to today?

    Please join us for a panel discussion with three alumnae athletes: Anne Keating ’77, Patricia Melton ’83, Jennifer Bevorka ’98, and two current student athletes: Coco Chai ’23 and Clare Boone ’23. They will be joined by Yale Director of Athletics Vicky Chun. Don't miss it!

    Two images side-by-side. Headshot of author Margot McMahon smiling. Book cover with the words "If Trees Could Talk: a memoir, Margot McMahon" over a watercolor image of a woman's face superimposed on a pine forest with a road curving through it and a lone car on the road.
    Author Talk: The Luster of Things Gifted, Margot McMahon.  
    Art historians interpret a myriad of details into paintings, artifacts and sculptures to uncover insights into historical moments and people portrayed. The things left behind matters in what we bring to it, what it triggers in us. The intent and energy summoned to make it, use it, or care for an object keeps it evolving. Like a book changes with subsequent readings, the thing, the smell of rice pudding, the jingle of a charm bracelet, reveals itself like a melting snowflake: unique, pristine and fleeting. The nouns spring into verbs. Grasp that flash of memory in a word. Jot it down, flesh it out, give background and tell its story.

    Whether you want to read a story, watch a movie, or write your own, Aristotle’s Three-Act Story Structure offers you a macro-habit to buff and polish your thing into your lustrous story. Introduce the Problem with a character, or two, and a setting. Flip it in a twist. At the boiling point of Confrontation, this midpoint pivots the plot. Your character changes course. Surprise your reader with a kink, curl or slip that hints at the Solution easing into the conclusion.  Your reader, watcher, listener wants to experience this plot arc allowing you the joy of filling in your memory.

    Margot McMahon shows her predicament of untold family stories with one… last… very-quiet relative, a painter. His paintings gave her the clues for her questions. Tidbits of responses guide her reading to fill in the details. She was on a several-year quest for answers until her writing began to feel like a book. Join Yale Women to watch how Margot, in three acts, uncovers her past from interpreting a series of paintings to reveal family stories never told.  She begins her story with, “My questions got cryptic answers and often, “It was kind-of like that.” We had survived the teeth of stupefying odds…Moments evolved into his story of interwoven truths, both mentioned and imagined, until one became the other.”

    A lifelong-environmentalist, internationally-awarded artist Margot McMahon’s The Fifth Season received a 2020 Mate E. Palmer First Place Book Award (IWPA) that she had expanded from her MIT Press published paper, Transforming Nature. Aquarius Press launched her Mac and Irene: A WWII Saga in June and If Trees Could Talk in November of 2021.  RESIST! A Visual History of Protest will be launched in 2022. Airdrie, a young adult book, was published in 2021. The Gift of Art: Sculpture Ventures for Young Artists was published by Yale University Print & Publishing in 2018. Margot taught at Yale University where she earned an MFA, the Art Institute of Chicago and DePaul University amongst other places. Margot’s environmental statements are also published in Scholastic Magazine, Chicago Magazine and World Book Encyclopedia. For more information please visit https://www.margotmcmahon.com .

    Healing Our Planet

    Welcome! You are invited to join a webinar: Healing Our Planet by Radically Listening to Communities: A Virtual Conversation with Dr. Kinari Webb and Dean Ann Kurth. 

    Tropical rainforests are the lungs of the Earth. They cool and heal the planet. Losing forests means increased carbon emissions, zoonotic pandemics, and mass extinction. In 2007, Dr. Kinari Webb (Yale MD, ’02) pioneered an experiment in reversing deforestation that entailed listening to experts—the communities encircling a Bornean rainforest—and then facilitating their solutions for integrating the care of humans and their environment. Health In Harmony, the NGO Dr. Webb founded in the US, partnered with the Indonesian NGO she helped found to implement the community’s solutions of increased access to healthcare and training in organic farming. This approach succeeded in protecting the forest, while dramatically improving communities’ wellbeing. Health In Harmony, has replicated this approach in Madagascar, and Brazil, and is working to scale up globally. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email about joining the webinar.

    Book cover with the words \

    Author Talk: My Experience with Professional Book Marketing, Holly Maholm (Morse '71), author of Offered Magic: My Life Among the Unicorns.

    Holly Maholm (a transgender woman) will share her experience with a professional book marketing company she hired in 2015 to help her promote a book she was self-publishing at that time. Holly will share the tactics and strategies employed by that firm, including “what worked and what didn’t” based on a cost/benefit analysis. She will also describe the unexpected success that was achieved, and how it has opened up new avenues for Holly in publishing in the LGBT+ space. Holly will discuss her latest book Offered Magic: My Life Among the Unicorns recently released on Amazon.

    Holly (Yale College, Morse 1971, Japanese Studies major) left for Tokyo promptly after graduation, where she worked for two years doing translation and research at a Japanese/American law firm. She returned to the U.S. for law school (Ohio State University School of Law; Ohio bar member), after which she returned to Tokyo to practice law with another Japanese/American firm. At that firm, she did extensive work for an American company – International Management Group (IMG) – which was until recently the largest firm of athlete agents in the world. In 1979 Holly returned to the head office of IMG, in Cleveland, where she worked for 25 years as a senior attorney representing a great many celebrity athletes, sports organizations and sporting events. Holly retired from IMG in 2004, but continues to represent one client active in the sport of golf.

    In 2013 Holly unexpectantly underwent a transition from her prior male identity to “Holly,” and has since lived as a transgender woman. Holly has been married twice and has three children, from her first marriage. In 2011, before her transition, Holly self-published a book of speculative fiction entitled When Once I Lived (available on Amazon). In 2015, after her transition, she self-published another book (also on Amazon) entitled Brave in Ribbons which represents a “reimagining” of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol with a transgender woman as the focus of the story.

    Book cover with a photo of a Vietnamese dish from the cookbook, and the following text: Total Wholesome Vietnamese Cooking, Rosette Nguyen. 100+ Authentic Recipes for Real Flavors and Better Health.Photo of Rosette Nguyen smiling, wind in her hair, palm trees in the backgroundAuthor Talk: Creating and Self-Publishing a Cook Book, a talk by member Rosette Nguyen, who recently launched her book Wholesome Vietnamese Cooking as the #1 new release in Vietnamese / Pacific Rim cooking on Amazon.  This is Rosette’s first book, and it has been quite an adventure!  She plans to share with the YaleWomen Writers Group key takeaways from her book journey along with a couple of her favorite recipes.  The book is now available in Kindle, hardcover, and paperback at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09K9T82DX.

    After earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Mathematics with a specialty in Computer Science from Yale, she worked at IBM as a software developer before getting her MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.   She has spent most of her career at high-tech companies, where she has guided strategy and execution to bring advanced technologies to customers worldwide, including companies of all sizes, health care providers, governments, and educational institutions.  She delights in drawing insights from research and data to inspire and guide transformations in public and private sectors as well as in the kitchen.  She started cooking at an early age by helping her parents in their home kitchen. For her, cooking has been a joy born out of a nurturing instinct and a love for creating art guided by science.  Besides caring for her elderly parents, she is an avid investor in humanitarian causes; she also serves as a volunteer to give back to local communities and her alma maters in various capacities, including serving on the YaleWomen Council.  Her hobbies include exploring and discovering new things, creative outlets such as writing and photography, and gardening.  Most of all, she enjoys raising her teenage son with her husband in northern California.

    Applying the Tools of Poetry to Your Prose, workshop by expert member Jennifer Freed

    What has poetry got to do with your screenplay, memoir, or short story collection?  You don’t have to be a poet to put its tools to work in your own writing.  In this presentation, Jennifer Freed (Morse College, ’87) will talk about ways any writer can use devices such as sound, silence, and sentence structure to make her work more effective.

     

    Since graduating from college in 1987, Jennifer Freed has worked primarily in adult education, both in the United States and overseas, as teacher of English, public speaking, and writing skills, as well as in the areas of teacher training and curriculum development.  Currently, when not immersed in caring for her aging parents, she does free-lance editing and leads Craft of Writing workshops at her library and local community centers.  Her prose has appeared in the Yale China Review, The Boston Globe Travel section, and 50-word stories.  Her poetry appears in various online and print literary journals, ranging from Atticus Review to Zone 3.  She was winner of the 2020 Samuel Washington Allen prize from the New England Poetry Club for her long poem sequence “Cerebral Hemorrhage” and has been a finalist for the O’Hara Prize multiple times. Her 2014 chapbook “These Hands Still Holding” was a finalist for the New Woman’s Voices contest, and her first full length poetry collection (a memoir in the form of poems) will be published by Kelsay in the spring of 2022.  Please visit jfreed.weebly.com for more information.

    "Balcony View Living at Ground Zero After 9/11”, 20th Anniversary Edition, by Julia Frey

    Julia Frey, http://www.juliafreyauthor.com/ is a member of the YW France Chapter.

    Julia Frey’s diary begins with September 11, 2001, when she and her terminally ill husband, novelist Ronald Sukenick, decide to flee the falling towers. They abandon his wheelchair; he cannot climb on a boat. Hours later, covered with ashes, they struggle back through a neighborhood pitched into chaos, to look across the street, out his study window, at “the stage set for Dante’s Inferno.” That’s when Julia decides to write it all down — if only for the people who will find their bodies. Describing the first night in the the ruins, being evacuated, then returning weeks later, to live locked behind police tape at Ground Zero, she discovers that their world has totally changed, yet finally not changed at all. “Our previous problems didn’t magically disappear. They were just waiting for us to come back in the door.”

    "Balcony View Living at Ground Zero After 9/11” is the story of an intellectual who learned how to overcome a crisis in a world that could no longer be explained by rational thought. Her raw motions make it the best 9/11 document that anyone could produce about life in that situation."

    The Shifting Conversation About Equity at Work

    Our new virtual series from YaleWomen is designed to foster conversation and engagement that fuel action around advancing equity in our professional and personal lives. From politics to the arts, from tech start-ups to finance and science, we’ll explore how Yale women are addressing equity challenges and creating positive and enduring change.

    Our guest for the next session is Judy Samuelson, Yale SOM, author, The Six New Rules of Business: Creating Value in a Changing World. Samuelson is founder and executive director of the Aspen Institute Business and Society Program and a Vice President at the Aspen Institute. Signature programs under her leadership include a ten-year campaign to disrupt Milton Friedman’s narrative about corporate purpose, a multi-year dialogue to produce the Aspen Principles of Long-term Value Creation, and a partnership with Korn Ferry to rethink executive pay. 

    Here’s a link to order The Six New Rules of Business: Creating Real Value in a Changing World: Order here

    In our session, moderated by Amy Armitage, Samuelson will tackle questions of equity in the design of business and business decisions—both what is possible and what parts of the system—including the structure of executive pay—that are holding us back. We’ll discuss ‘choice points’ for executives, and how pay equity, rewards, and fairness link to long-term business success. Join us to explore through case studies and conversation new ideas about fairness and equity at work.

    Special guest speaker: Margarita Gokun Silver, author of I Named My Dog Pushkin (And Other Immigrant Tales), and member of YaleWomen Writers.

    Book cover image with and image of a soda can with a soviet hammer and sickle replacing the soda brand and the text \Margarita Gokun Silver is a freelance journalist, essayist, and novelist. Her articles and essays have been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, BBC, NPR and The Atlantic, among others. Her essay collection I NAMED MY DOG PUSHKIN (AND OTHER IMMIGRANT TALES) came out on July 29, 2021 and was called “laugh-out-loud funny” by NPR Books ) and “a delight” by Jen Mann, a NYT bestselling author.

    The collection includes stories of Margarita coming of age as a young Jewish woman in the antisemitic Soviet Union, convincing her family to emigrate, arriving to the US, and trying to make it as an immigrant. Her publisher summarized the collection this way: “Sharp and unflinching, I Named My Dog Pushkin will have readers howling with laughter at Margarita’s catastrophes, her victories and her near misses as she learns to grow as both a woman and an immigrant in a world that often doesn’t appreciate either.”

    Find out more about Margarita’s work on her website and follow Margarita on Twitter @MGokunSilver.

    Conversations on Equity: Playing the Long Game


    This new virtual series from YaleWomen is designed to foster conversation and engagement that fuel action around advancing gender, racial and ethnic equity. From politics to the arts, from tech start-ups to finance and science, we’ll explore how Yale women are addressing equity challenges and creating positive and enduring change. As a launch to our series, we’ll tackle the challenge of political leadership and share how Yale women are changing the game – for good.   

    To kick off the series, 

    POLITICAL LEADERSHIP AND WHY IT COUNTS

    Thursday, August 5 @12EST/9AM PT. Accelerating gender parity in political office, while mobilizing women to lead change, is the job of our first guest host, Tiffany Gardner, CEO of ReflectUS.  Following a distinguished career in international law and a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Gardner currently leads a national, nonpartisan coalition working to increase the number of women in office and achieve equal representation across ideological, racial, and geographic spectrums in the United States. Join us for a conversation about the unique contribution women are making now – and can make in the future - through political leadership at all levels. Come explore just a few of the practices we are using to change the world around us.

    Women in Politics: Teneshia Hudspeth's Journey

    Ever wondered what it’s really like to run for office? Maybe you are uninterested, cynical, or skeptical regarding politics, but for most who choose to run, the exercise manifests a call to service. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to run for office, and why candidates run, this event is for you.

    On June 6 at 3pm Central, YaleWomen Houston welcomes Harris County Clerk Teneshia Hudspeth for a non-partisan virtual conversation on her journey. Clerk Hudspeth is a graduate of The Women’s Campaign School at Yale, recently renamed The Campaign School at Yale (TCSY). A non-partisan and issue-neutral organization, sponsored by the Yale Law School, TCSY empowers individuals to lead through politics. Led by Patti Russo, the organization has supported the political careers of over 4,000 women over the past two and a half decades.

    About Clerk Hudspeth

    Teneshia Hudspeth is County Clerk of the third-largest county in the nation and the largest county in the State of Texas. Harris County has a population of more than 4.7 million. She is also the first African-American woman to serve in this role. Clerk Hudspeth is a native of Austin, Texas, but has called Houston home for more than 20 years. She and her husband Samson Babalola are the happy parents of Josiah.

    Clerk Hudspeth has been with the County Clerk’s office for more than 15 years and has served under four County Clerks. She began her career as the Public Affairs Administrative Assistant, was promoted to Voter Outreach Coordinator and Public Information Officer, eventually becoming the Administrator of Communications and Voter Outreach. In January 2020, she was appointed Chief Deputy, responsible for office operations and in less than a year was elected Harris County Clerk.

    Regardless of one’s political leanings, civic engagement for us as a society is more important than ever. Please join us for this intriguing event.

    YaleWomen Talks Money, Part 3: Sustaining Lifelong FInancial Wellness

    YaleWomen Talks Money_3 event dates and times listed over a stack of coins


    Finances are a leading cause of stress among women, and the past year has only intensified the strain. Four out of five women in a recent survey said they were weighed down by financial concerns ranging from job loss to low pay and limited savings.

    You can achieve greater financial wellness, even after a year like 2020. Join us for a miniseries with Susan Pepin ’87 and Kelley Holland, ’86 MPPM that will empower you financially so you can stress less, thrive more, and live life on your terms. 

    How is it that study after study shows that women often feel unsure when it comes to their money lives?

    Please visit eventbrite for tickets: Amy Ziering

    About this Event

    May 19th @ NOON PST and 3PM EDT: In Conversation with Dr. Natasha Boas '96 Ph.D., Amy Ziering '90 MA, M.Phil will discuss how her Yale graduate studies in Comparative Literature led to her successful career as a researcher, documentarian, and writer. She will also talk about "Derrida", her 2002 film about the famous French philosopher and Yale professor Jacques Derrida, as well as her award winning documentaries "The Hunting Ground," "The Invisible War," "The Bleeding Edge," "On the Record," and, most recently, "Allen v. Farrow." Meet The Woman Behind The Last Decade's Most Important Films About Sexual Assault.

    Join us for this special program, brought to the Yale community by YaleWomen in partnership with the Yale Alumni Association Shared Interest Groups.

    
		A CONVERSATION WITH OSCAR NOMINATED AND EMMY-WINNING FILMMAKER AMY ZIERING image

    Amy Ziering '90 MA, M.Phil is a two-time Emmy-award winning and Academy award-nominated filmmaker behind the most groundbreaking investigatory documentaries today with her creative partner Kirby Dick. Their Oscar-nominated film, THE INVISIBLE WAR, broke the story of the epidemic of rape in the U.S. military and led to five congressional hearings and the passing of 35 reforms through Congress. Their follow up film, THE HUNTING GROUND, about campus sexual assault, ignited a national discussion and led to sweeping policy changes at hundreds of schools. Their next film, THE BLEEDING EDGE, about the fast-growing medical device industry's corruption and malfeasance, has already compelled industry giant Bayer to remove one harmful device from the market, and is catalyzing a worldwide debate about regulation and patient safety. Currently their latest critically-acclaimed film, ON THE RECORD, now streaming on HBO Max, follows a music executive as she grapples with abuse she faced from men in her industry and her decision to become one of the first women of color to come forward as part of the #MeToo movement. Throughout their filmography, notable accolades they have amassed include: two Oscar nominations, two Emmy awards, a Peabody, an Independent Spirit Award, a duPont-Columbia Award, the Nestor Almendros Prize for Courage and Filmmaking, an Upton Sinclair Award, the Ridenhour Documentary Film Prize, and the George Polk Award.

    Virtual Event Series Presents: Live Tour of Prague


    Armchair travel experience that lets you explore the world from your living room. We miss the smell of jet fuel as much as an island breeze. And while those things might not be in the cards for most of us at the moment, virtual travel can at least fill a void until we can finally resume globetrotting.

    Sunday April 25 1PM EST / 7PM CETexplore Prague from the comfort of home with fellow Yale woman, Bonita Rhoads, co-founder of Insight Cities, a network of local historian guides in Central Europe.

    This live stream tour enables us to cross the Charles Bridge, symbol of Prague, built by Emperor Charles IV over 650 years ago. Enjoying fabulous river views of Prague’s Castle, National Theatre and other famous sites on the Vltava banks, we learn about the Czech capital, from medieval to modern eras. Moving on through the winding streets of Old Town past Renaissance house signs, we arrive at Old Town Square with its fabled Astronomical Clock, the soaring Gothic towers of Tyn Church, the art nouveau Jan Hus monument and the balcony from which the first communist president, Klement Gottwald, declared the Cold War dictatorship of 1948. At each major site, we pause for questions and discussion. 

    This is a free event. Please RSVP if you're interested. Details and access link will be provided closer to the date of the event. 

    UPDATE 4/23/21: RSVP FOR THIS EVENT HAS CLOSED. Please email us at [email protected] if you'd like to join the RSVP list.

    YW-Boston Zoom with a Yalie Shaman

    Join YW Erin Sharaf for a booster shot of mindfulness, magic, and a little shamanism thrown in to help us all gear up and reset for the transition into 2021!

    Erin has transformed her Western education, including a Yale School of Medicine Physician's Assistant degree, into a career channeling her passion into helping others find true wellness. She leads mindfulness groups, virtually and in person, joyfully coaches those interested in shedding limiting beliefs, and believes that inner transformation is the key to global transformation. You can often find her dancing tango, figure skating, on her yoga mat, or wandering the world.  

    Erin will lead a one hour experience via Zoom on Wednesday evening December 16, from 6-7PM. There will be poetry, mindfulness, heart-opening practices, and a short ceremony to honor the natural world; a healing salve to help boost our spiritual immunity. 

    Please RSVP to [email protected] and the Zoom link will be provided to you in time to attend.

    for discussions on

    Yale Professor Laurie Santos’s class

    The Science of Well Being

    We met on September 30th to discuss the first 6 classes of "The Science of Well Being", a course adapted from the Yale College course Psychology and the Good Life, the most popular class in the history of Yale (taken by more than one-quarter of Yale undergraduates in the first year it was offered). The Science of Well Being focuses on things people think will make them happy but don’t and things that bring people lasting satisfaction. It is taught by who is a Professor of Psychology and Head of Silliman College at Yale University. Dr. Santos hosts the popular podcast, The Happiness Lab. Additionally, she is the director of the Comparative Cognition Laboratory and the Canine Cognition Center at Yale. She received her A.B. in Psychology and Biology from Harvard University in 1997 and her Ph.D. in Psychology from Harvard in 2003.

    The full ten-week "Science of Well Being" class is available for free at www.coursera.org. YaleWomen Connecticut invites you to join us by signing up and taking the class. Each week of the course generally takes one to two hours to complete. If you missed our September discussion, please do not dismay - be happy!  Feel free to watch as much as you can before October 28th - and join the Zoom discussion regardless!!

    Talking to Brynne Kennedy,who is running for Northern California's 4th district, felt like running into an amazing Yale classmate that you didn't remember from "back in the day." The kind of person you just want to keep asking questions to and getting to know better.

    I'd probably start with these questions:

    What's it really like to run for congress? 

    Is it harder as a woman to run/get heard?

    What motivates you to see the problems around your area and think, I could be a better solution?

    What the best/worst part about running? What was the biggest surprise for you?

    Well these are my questions – what are yours? I wanted to give you that opportunity to ask!

    So please come for our up close and intimate chat with Brynne Kennedy THIS TUESDAY about what it's really like to run for congress in today's world, in a Covid world, and with a male dominated congress.

    To join the call October 13th, 7-8pm PT - just hit reply or click here and I'll send you the Zoom link.

    Brynne Kennedy earned her Bachelors Degree from Yale University, her MBA from the London Business School, and speaks Mandarin and French. She lives in Roseville, California. An accomplished businesswoman, Kennedy is the founder of Topia – a software company that has pioneered new tools to help more businesses compete in a changing economy, while helping tens of thousands of workers transition into new jobs and communities.

    She was raised in a rural community that struggled in the aftermath of manufacturing plant closures. Her father was a community college teacher, the first in his family to attend college and a military veteran. Her mother runs a small-town store. Since leaving Topia, Kennedy has emerged as one of America’s leading voices on the effects of technology on the workplace, and for policies that enable more workers and businesses to acquire the skills and support to compete in the 21st century. She’s a former columnist for the Financial Times and her first book was published by McGraw-Hill in October of 2019.

    Glorious Boy

    “Reminiscent of the tone and atmosphere of Somerset Maugham and George Orwell’s Asia-set novels, Glorious Boy is a Second World War story of adventure and loss, uniquely set in the Andaman Islands, one of India’s farthest flung territories” – Asian Review of Books

    It’s 1942. The Japanese have invaded Burma and are closing in on India. After five years in the remote Andaman Islands, aspiring anthropologist Claire Durant and her husband Shep, a civil surgeon, must evacuate with their beloved but mysteriously mute four-year-old, Ty. They cannot, however, take Naila, the local girl whose ability to communicate with Ty has made them dangerously dependent on her. The morning of the evacuation, both children disappear. With time running out, Shep forces Claire onto the ship while he stays behind to find their son. But just days after landing in Calcutta, Claire learns that the Japanese have taken the Andamans—and cut off all access to her missing family. In the desperate odyssey that follows, Claire, Shep, and Naila will all take unimaginable risks while drawing deeply from their knowledge of these unique islands to save their beloved “glorious boy.”

    Praise for Glorious Boy:

    “Evokes every side in a multi-cultural conversation with sympathy and rare understanding.” – Pico Iyer

    One of the NY Post’s “Best Books of the Week”

    College admissions can feel like a black box. Yet it's a black box where everyone you know has an opinion.

    Should you apply early? Do the essays really matter? And of course now with Covid, do you still need to take the ACT/SATs? What happens if you don't?

    For most YaleWomen alums with high schoolers starting to think about college, it's been a long time since we were "in the process," and so much has changed.

    Luckily for you, we pulled together 3 amazing experts for our panel on demystifying the college admissions process.

    Please join us for this information-rich panel with plenty of time for Q&A so that you can get all your quesitons answered...And from the comfort of your own home. What's not to love?

    P.S. If your good friend is going through the same confusion or uncertainty, feel free to share this event with them as well.

    YW-Houston From Suffrage to the Pandemic Homeschooling Crisis: Gendering Civic Engagement

    The YaleWomen Houston Chapter invites you to a discussion (via Zoom) with 

    Dr. Elizabeth Gregory PhD ‘89

    From Suffrage to the Pandemic Homeschooling Crisis: Gendering Civic Engagement

    Sunday, September 20, 3-4 PM CST

    In her recent article in The Nation, Dr. Gregory suggests that using “the Covid-19 crisis to transform national family, education, and work policies would jump-start real education equity and a culture and economy of care.”

    She points out that, a century after women finally achieved the basic right of suffrage, women still lack representation on court benches, in legislatures, and on corporate boards. “There are few in office advocating for women’s issues in this COVID moment, so the wider community must address the national homeschooling catastrophe families are facing, the burden of which falls largely on women.” 

    Dr. Gregory will discuss these and other issues with us, and will respond to questions. 

    Please RSVP to Anne Furse ([email protected]) by September 16th; Zoom log-in details will be sent to registrants the day before the event.

    Dr. Gregory directs the Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies program and the Institute for Research on Women, Gender & Sexuality at the University of Houston, where she is a professor of English. Her research focuses on both American modernist poetry and women’s work and fertility; her current work explores the economics of gender, with a focus on Houston.

    YW-CT Connecticut Historical Society: 100th Anniversary of Women's Suffrage

    Word of this event spread before we were able to get it to you by blast email and it immediately “sold out.” This is a private tour of the storage and collections areas of the Connecticut Historical Society – small spaces that are not normally open to the public – maximum capacity for the tour is 14 people. We have started a wait list – to be included on the list, email Susan Lennon at [email protected].  (If there is sufficient interest, perhaps we can persuade the Museum to offer a second private tour at another time!)

    Do you know that the 50WomenAtYale150 celebrations coincide with the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women's constitutional right to vote?

    Join YaleWomen Connecticut in celebrating 50WomenAtYale150 – the 50th anniversary of the coeducation of Yale College and the 150th anniversary of the Graduate & Professional Schools!

    Saturday, January 18, 2020

    3-4 pm

    Connecticut Historical Society

    One Elizabeth Street

    Hartford, CT

    Immediately preceding the tour, there will be a potluck -- light lunch and sweet treats – at Susan Lennon’s home, just up the street from the Museum (address will be provided to attendees).

    RSVP to Susan at [email protected] no later than January 11, 2020.

    The Connecticut Historical Society (located in Hartford, which was front and center in the suffragette movement) has generously offered YaleWomen Connecticut a limited capacity (maximum capacity is 14 people), private tour of "Behind-the-Scenes Tour: The Fight For Women’s Suffrage In Connecticut" at 3 pm, Saturday, January 18, 2020. 

    How did the women of Connecticut work for – or against – the right to vote? In this behind-the-scenes program, we’ll look at photos, letters and pamphlets from the Museum’s collection to understand one of the most hard-fought political battles of American history. You’ll learn about suffragists like Katherine Houghton Hepburn (mother of Katharine Hepburn, who grew up in Hartford), Mary Townsend Seymour, and Isabella Beecher Hooker, as well as some Connecticut women who fought tooth-and-nail against women getting the vote (what was up with them?).

    This tour will take guests into storage and collections areas of the Museum not normally open to the public.

    $10 CHS members, $15 for non-members. Tours last approximately 1 hour and are appropriate for ages 12 and up.

    YW-France-Tour of Maps by Artists

    Quand les artistes dessinaient les cartes. Vues et figures de l’espace français Moyen Âge et Renaissance

    When Artists Drew Maps. Views and Figures of France in the Middle Ages and Renaissance

    In celebration and commemoration of 50WomenAtYale150 join YaleWomen France for a distinctive event that shines a light on women. Join us at the National Archives for a tour of When Artists Drew Maps. Views and Figures of France in the Middle Ages and Renaissance with Camille Serchuk (MA ’86,MPhil ’88, PhD ‘97), who collaborated with Juliette Dumasy-Rabineau and Nadine Gastaldi to create this exhibition.

    When:

    Tuesday, December 17, 2019

    Schedule:

    11:00 am            Meet in the lobby of the National Archives for the Tour

    12:30 noon         Optional lunch gathering nearby

    Register no later than Sunday, December 15

    RSVP to Victoria Bridges Moussaron at [email protected] 

    Soar over or explore the cities and countryside of medieval and Renaissance France. Discover another kind of cartography, one at the confluence of surveying, observation and art that appears at the end of the Middle Ages and beginning of the Early Modern period (14th - 16th century).. This is what the exhibition When Artists Drew Maps. Views and Figures of France in the Middle Ages and Renaissance invites us to do.

    Archives and libraries conserve a large number of maps, plans, and views of territories from all over France, produced between 1300 and 1600. They reveal, quite literally, the landscapes of France at that time. The exhibition will present some the most beautiful examples of these images.

    Many of these so-called “figures” were made by painters, including some of the most famous artists of their day (Jean Cousin, Bernard Palissy, Nicolas Dipre...). The images are thus at the intersection of art and cartography. Most of them are exhibited to the general public for the first time, providing exceptional insight into the landscapes and contexts of daily life at the end of the Middle Ages and the beginning of the Renaissance.

    In the age of GPS, Google View and Google Earth, which have renewed our ability to comprehend a large space with the help of an image, these visual maps should not surprise us; instead, they should make us think about our relationship to space and our confidence in its representation. With this exhibition, the Archives nationales aims to bring to light these little-known documents, most of which are on public display for the first time.

    YWLA Blue Reads Book Club Dec 8 - Once Removed

    Please join us for a YaleWomen BlueReads Book Club discussion and Q&A with Colette Sartor, author of the linked short story collection Once Removed, which won the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction.

    When: Sunday, December 8th, 6pm-8pm

    Where: A private residence in Beverlywood, address upon RSVP

    Note: Maximum Capacity is 50 – so please sign up as early as possible. And, if you later find you cannot come, please be sure to cancel your RSVP to open a seat for another.

    Colette Sartor, Yale ’88, has published award-winning short stories and personal essays in the Chicago Tribune, Kenyon Review Online, Colorado Review, and numerous other publications. A writing instructor for almost twenty years, Colette currently teaches at the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program and the Los Angeles Writers’ Grotto as well as privately. She lives in LA with her husband, son, and very large German Shepherd dog who’s afraid of the wind.

    Once Removed

    The women in the linked short story collection Once Removed carry the burdens imposed in the name of intimacy―the secrets kept, the lies told, the disputes initiated―as well as the joy that can still manage to triumph. A singer with a damaged voice and an assumed identity befriends a silent, troubled child; an infertile law professor covets a tenant’s daughterly affection; a new mother tries to shield her infant from her estranged mother’s surprise Easter visit; an aging shopkeeper hides her husband’s decline and a decades-old lie to keep her best friends from moving away.

    With depth and an acute sense of the fragility of intimate connection, Colette Sartor creates stories of women that resonate with emotional complexity. Some of these women possess the fierce natures and long, vengeful memories of expert grudge holders. Others avoid conflict at every turn, or so they tell themselves. For all of them, grief lies at the core of love.

    Learn more about Colette and find links to purchase Once Removed here: https://colettesartor.com/books/

    WHAT TO BRING:

    • A copy of the book, if you want to have it signed by Colette.
    • Something for the potluck – food, beverage, paper plates… Once RSVP’d, we will reach out to coordinate your “offering.
    • Questions to ask Colette during the Q&A portion of this evening.

    We greatly look forward to seeing you at this event!

    YW-CT PERIOD. End of Sentence

    “PERIOD. End of Sentence”

    Viewing of the Oscar winning documentary film

    Q&A with executive producer Sophie Ascheim ’22

    Packing party

    Wednesday, November 6, 2019

    7:30 p.m. on the Yale Campus (the location will be shared with registrants)

    Join us for an event that combines education, community service, and the opportunity to hear from and mingle with an Oscar winner and other talented Yale undergraduates. We will learn about ways to reduce period poverty and period stigma both globally and in the New Haven community!  As Sophie Ascheim ’22 found out when she was in high school, girls in the developing world who lack clean menstrual supplies often develop infections and other health problems and drop out of school.  Along with teachers and parents, Sophie and two friends started a nonprofit, The Pad Project, and made a movie to change this. “Period. End of Sentence” shows how making low-cost pads with a specially designed machine empowered women and improved the economy in a rural Indian village. Earlier  this year the film won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Short.

    But period poverty is not exclusive to  the developing world.  Homeless and poor girls and women in the United States, including New Haven, also lack the products they need to handle their periods confidently.  After viewing the documentary and engaging in a Q&A with Sophie, we will  have a “packing party,” in which we will assemble kits of menstrual products that will be donated to New Haven agencies. 

    We’ll make the kits alongside members of [email protected], a student chapter of the national PERIOD organization, the largest youth-run nonprofit in women’s health.  [email protected] members will order the menstrual supplies ahead of time from the national organization.  There is a $5 cash registration fee, to be collected at the door, that will reimburse the Yale chapter for obtaining the supplies. Donations larger than $5 are most welcome.

    Prior to viewing the film, we’ll have an optional, pay-as-you-go dinner at Yorkside Pizza at 6:00 p.m.  The event itself will start at 7:30 p.m. at a location to be announced to registrants.

    Please RSVP by October 30th using the RSVP on this site below. 

    If you will also join before for dinner, please email Suzanne Solensky at [email protected]

    Registration is limited to 100 people.

    Co-sponsored by by Yale Alumni Nonprofit Alliance – New England (YANA), Yale School of Nursing Alumni Association, and 1stGenYale.

    "The strongest creature on earth is not the elephant, not the tiger, but the girl." 

    (Murugananthem, the inventor of the specially designed pad machine)

    YaleWomen Boston Annual Fall Meeting

    We are excited to feature Kate Walsh, Yale '77 B.A., '79 M.P.H, as the guest speaker for YaleWomen Boston's annual fall event and celebration of 50WomenatYale150. Kate is President and CEO of Boston Medical Center, a private, not-for-profit academic medical center that disproportionately serves low-income patients and anchors the BMC Health System with an operating revenue of $2.8 billion. In her role, Ms. Walsh leads the BMC and the Boston Medical Center HealthNet Plan, which provides health insurance and access to care to nearly 300,000 low-income individuals. In partnership with the dean of the Boston University School of Medicine, she oversees the school’s faculty practice plan. After earning her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Yale, Ms. Walsh served in a variety of positions in New York City hospitals. She returned to her home city of Boston in 1988, first as an assistant general director in medical services at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). During a fourteen-year tenure at MGH she advanced twice, ultimately becoming senior vice president of medical services and of the MGH Cancer Center. Prior to her current role, Ms. Walsh served as executive vice president and chief operating officer of Brigham Health and as chief operating officer of Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research. She is chair of the Council of Teaching Hospitals and Health Systems for the Association of American Medical Colleges, and the immediate past chair of the Massachusetts Hospital Association. She is also director of the Boston Public Health Commission, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, and Pine Street Inn, a Boston-based organization that supports and advocates for homeless individuals. Ms. Walsh has served on the University Council and was a non-trustee member of the Yale Corporation Committee on the School of Medicine prior to her election as an alumni fellow in 2017.

    Thanks to Beth H. Mitchell, Yale '83 B.A., Boston law firm Nutter McLennen & Fish will be hosting at their beautiful Seaport offices for an early evening of conversation about health care, women at Yale, and light fare. We will also provide more information on joining YaleWomen Boston's chapter leadership.

This exhibit highlights the academic, logistical, and social challenges faced by the first women undergraduates at Yale.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of coeducation in Yale College, the display includes photographs, memorabilia, university records, and the students’ own words from their replies to questionnaires and surveys, and from written accounts of their experiences. More information on the exhibit can be found here.

    We will meet in the lobby of Sterling Library at 11:25.

    YW-MA "Yale Needs Women" Book Tour Comes to Cambridge!

    "If Yale was going to keep its standing as one of the top two or three colleges in the nation, the availability of women was an amenity it could no longer do without." In the winter of 1969, from big cities to small towns, young women across the country sent in applications to Yale University for the first time. The Ivy League institution dedicated to graduating "one thousand male leaders" each year had finally decided to open its doors to the nation's top female students. The landmark decision was a huge step forward for women's equality in education. Or was it?

    About the Author:

    Anne Gardiner Perkins is an award-winning historian and expert in higher education. She graduated from Yale University, where she won the Porter Prize in history and was elected the first woman editor in chief of the Yale Daily News. Perkins is a Rhodes Scholar who received her PhD in higher education from the University of Massachusetts Boston and her master's in public administration from Harvard, where she won the Littauer Award for academic excellence and served as a teaching fellow in education policy. She has presented papers on the history of higher education at leading academic conferences and been a visiting scholar at the New England Resource Center for Higher Education. Perkins lives with her husband in Boston.

    Ashton Applewhite

    What if discrimination on the basis of age were as unacceptable as any other kind of prejudice? Ashton Applewhite is a leading voice in an emerging movement dedicated to dismantling ageism and making age a criterion for diversity. The author of This Chair Rocks and a TED2017 mainstage speaker, she reveals the untapped possibilities of late life – in our communities, at work, and in ourselves.

    Why is society’s view of aging so grim when the lived reality is so different? In her book This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism, Ashton Applewhite declares that it’s time to dismantle the last acceptable prejudice; it’s time for age pride. Her manifesto is so popular that Macmillan launched its brand new imprint with it in 2019. In her candid talks – as she does on her blog, This Chair Rocks, and her Q&A Tumblr, Yo, Is This Ageist? – she debunks our culture’s most pervasive myths about getting older.

    Andean Fire Ceremony YWLA

    ANDEAN FIRE CEREMONY

    Sunday, April 28, 7pm-9pm

    Please R.S.V.P. below

    At a private residence in Westwood - address will be sent upon r.s.v.p.

    Fire ceremonies are at the core of many shamanic traditions as a way to gather energies of Community and Nature, supporting us all to cleanse, redirect, and transform.

    This event offers an opportunity to experience a traditional fire ceremony as practiced in the Peruvian High Andes. A guided inner exploration will open a window to reflect upon what attachments and patterns are ready to be released, and what healthy energies, feelings, and dreams desire to be called in.

    Each participant will be invited to imbue their intentions symbolically into wooden sticks. These will be brought to the fire. The elders taught that when wood is burned, the energy held within is released.

    Stepping into the fire circle, one will step into a ritual space—a space of non-ordinary consciousness–and be informed by the alchemical energy of the fire.

    WHAT TO BRING:

    A rattle, shaker, or drum if you have one.

    Two (2) wooden sticks (dry).

    To be used for different purposes.

    Wool yarn or cotton thread, ribbon, etc. (nothing that has plastic in it)

    Fresh flowers, herbs

    Wear comfortable clothing

    ABOUT YOUR FACILITATOR:

    Susan Reiner, a Yale alum, is a Shamanic practitioner. She has studied around the world with indigenous medicine people, from above the Arctic Circle to the jungles of Peru, and was initiated into the ancient Quechuan wisdom tradition in the holy mountains of the High Andes.

    Her goal as a teacher, healer, and artist is to awaken each individual to the true essence of their individual power and beauty, uncovering the indigenous wisdom that resides in all of us. 

    With this clarity comes peace, grace, and harmony for our living planet and all of its elements.

    YaleWomen Philly Hidden City Tour

    Hidden City Philadelphia: North Central Philly Lost & Found

    Please join us for a YaleWomen Philly and YBAA-Philadelphia co-sponsored private tour with the Hidden City Philadelphia Cultural Trust, on Saturday, April 27 from 11:00am - 1:00pm. Guests are welcome. This tour is limited to the first 25 registrants, so don’t delay in securing your admission! Tickets for this event are $25, a portion of which goes to the Church of the Advocate, pictured above.

    The Tour

    For stunning late Victorian Gothic Revival architecture combined with fascinating social history, it's tough to beat Church of the Advocate at 18th and Diamond, the final stop on this tour but the first thing we want to tell you about (we didn't want to bury the lede!). The church's progressive social practices began at its founding with the abolition of "pew rents" and reached their height in the 1960s and 70s when it hosted the Conference of Black Power, the Black Panther Conference and the first ordination of women in the Episcopal church. We'll step inside the church's magnificent sanctuary, where a series of 14 murals painted in the 1970s depict scenes from the African-American experience in the company of guide Judith Robinson, a longtime resident of neighboring Strawberry Mansion.

    The tour will begin at Broad and Master, site of famed 19th century Shakespearean actor Edwin Forrest's mansion and now home to the Freedom Theater. We'll walk up Broad Street from there, and talk about Father Divine, the Columbia Avenue riots, Reverend Leon Sullivan's program of African-American economic empowerment, the long lost Monument Cemetery, Temple University's recent construction and expansion plans, plus a whole lot more. You'll never look at Philly the same way again. We guarantee it!

    About Hidden City Philadelphia

    "Hidden City Philadelphia of Culture Trust pulls back the curtain on the city’s most remarkable places and connects them to new people, functions, and resources.

    Do you know? (sources: various)

    • Homelessness is one of our nation’s most misunderstood and vexing social problems. Homelessness does not discriminate. Families with children, single adults, teenagers and older individuals of all races struggle with the devasting effects of homelessness.
    • More families experience homelessness in the United States than in any other industrialized nation. Thirty-five percent (35%) of homeless persons are in family households (typically a single mother with two young children). Families are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population.
    • One in 30 American children experience homelessness annually; 51% are under age five. More than 2.5 million children are homeless each year.
    • Thirty-one percent (31%) of all homeless people are youths under the age of 24.
    • While the number of veterans experiencing homelessness has decreased, veterans make up approximately 95% of all homeless adults – 90.8% are men and 8.5% are women.
    • The lack of affordable housing is a primary cause of homelessness. (Homelessness and poverty are inextricably linked, affecting the ability to pay for housing, food, childcare, health care and education.)
    • Domestic violence is also a primary cause of homelessness. Ninety-two percent (92%) of homeless women have experienced severe physical or sexual abuse at some point in their lives, and 63% have been victims of intimate partner violence as adults.

    To whet your appetite -- do you know?

    This is a story that has launched more than three dozen search and recovery missions, and over the past 170+ years it has inspired novels, plays, songs, and TV shows such as the 2017 horror series Terror. Margaret Atwood called it the origin myth of disasters for Canadians. This is the first comprehensive exhibit on the Franklin Expedition since the ships were located, and travels to Mystic from London and Ottawa before moving on to Alaska. Learn the story and see the artifacts, some recovered from the shipwrecks as recently as 2016. All the major angles are covered, including:

    • History – Possessed with a vast navy and extremely confident of its sailing prowess, Victorian England was obsessed with the Arctic, which represented their biggest hope of traversing the Northwest Passage, the much desired, possibly faster, trade route from Europe to Asia. In May 1845, Sir John Franklin and his 128-member crew set sail from London, England aboard HMS Erebus and Terror. They were last seen by Europeans in Baffin Bay, off the southwest corner of Greenland in July 1845. The enduring mystery of the Franklin Expedition is still unraveling.
    • Anthropology and Indigenous Rights – Inuit oral histories have played a significant role in uncovering the fate of the Franklin Expedition. Their critical contributions include both traditional knowledge and oral histories relating to the European exploration of the Arctic Archipelago, which you can listen to on audio stations interspersed throughout the exhibition, and historical artifacts, some of which incorporated materials of European origin, which were traded from explorers or retrieved from abandoned ships.
    • Underwater Archaeology – Parks Canada divers give a video tour of one wreck, and you’ll see the unbroken plates, glass bottles, and other daily items they’ve recovered from this remote dive site. With a short dive season entirely dependent on weather in the remote Canadian Arctic, each year the archaeologists plan for the worst, but hope to get even a few days on the wrecks to explore, document, and recover more evidence of what happened onboard.
    • Forensics – In examining tissues collected from human remains recovered from Beechey Island, forensic anthropologists found that the amount of lead in the bones of some of the men was exponentially high, leading to the theory that lead poisoning may have been one of the factors contributing to the expedition’s demise. Other factors include scurvy and starvation, and perhaps cannibalism. DNA analysis has also matched crew members with descendants.
    • Climate change – As the Northwest Passage has become more accessible to ships and boats of all types, the race to find and preserve the Franklin Expedition ships and camp sites has intensified. Learn how the Expedition suffered due to unexpectedly thick seasonal ice that trapped their ships even in the summer.

    High Performance Habits by Brendon Bouchard

    Everyone self-reflects at the beginning of a new year and commits to completing a new set of resolutions. This year, try something new. Bring your resolutions and meet with a small, tight knit group of Yale Women who will hold you accountable for the growth necessary to achieve them.

    Yale Women is dedicated to educating and elevating personal performance and leadership qualities by increasing knowledge and skills in the areas of high performance, authentic leadership and gender intelligence. If you can’t shake that feeling that you aren’t quite where you wanted or expected to be in life, this group is for you.

    We have a treasure trove of deeply knowledgeable, committed and successful women who have likely faced, overcome or helped others overcome the same issues. If you can define for yourself where you want to be, your fellow Yale Women will help you stay accountable for moving forward.

    This is more than a “book club” it’s a venue for members to gain a deeper insight into themselves through the books we read and be held accountable for follow-through skill building that will help each of us move from our current state closer to our desired future state.

    We meet bi-monthly on the second Sunday beginning January 13th from 1-3pmat First Watch in Meyerland Plaza Area. Reach out to your host, Stefani Kirchhoff, with any questions ([email protected]).

    The first growth challenge for each of us is to mine High Performance Habits by Brendon Bouchard for the habits you need to focus on in 2019 to move closer to your desired future state.

    **** Founded in 2011, YaleWomen is a community of alums – at the global and chapter levels – across Yale College and the Graduate & Professional Schools, and across years, geography and personal and professional interests as well as a broad range of different experiences, perspectives, and opinions. As part of its mission, YaleWomen is committed to advancing women’s voices and perspectives. YaleWomen encourages its members at the global, national, and local levels to advance the issues they believe in by engaging in the public policy and electoral process, advocating for changes in particular areas of society, and providing education about such matters. As a 501c3, YaleWomen must do so within the constraints imposed by IRS rules regarding prohibiting lobbying, advocacy, and partisan activity. One of YaleWomen’s greatest strengths is inclusivity – bringing together and learning from the plurality of our voices, in ways that are both respectful and civil. Inclusivity is, in fact, one of YaleWomen’s core values. The plurality of voices – Yale women alums’ voices – produces democracy! ****

    YW Boston The Niceties

    Please join YaleWomen Boston for a special opportunity to meet playwright Eleanor Burgess ’07 during the August 31st through October 6th run of her play The Niceties at the Huntington Theatre Company!  A Brookline native, Eleanor describes The Niceties as “a story about academic power and liberal dogmas, about frighteningly smart people and the stories we tell ourselves about history – it’s made for this city.”  After the 2 pm performance on the 29th, Eleanor will be doing a talkback, focusing on how we talk about and teach history, including painful elements of American history.  For those interested in gathering for lunch before the performance, we will make a reservation at The Beehive at 12:15 pm.  Please rsvp here so that we can reserve enough seats at the restaurant.  You must purchase your own ticket to the play.

    The Washington Post describes The Niceties as “a barnburner of a play! Destined to be performed everywhere. One of the best plays I’ve seen about who gets to tell the story of America, and how.”

    Prudence Crandall Museum

    YW-CT Museum Trail - Prudence Crandall Museum

    Prudence_Crandall_Picture.jpgYaleWomen Connecticut is happy to announce our next stop on the Museum Trail – the Prudence Crandall Museum in Canterbury, CT. Join us on Saturday, September 29 as we visit the home of New England’s first educational academy for African-American women (1833-1834). The museum is a National Historic Landmark and a State Archaeological Preserve. We will take in the general museum offerings and also enjoy a guided tour of the museum’s newest exhibit, “The Story Outlives the Canvas,” which explores the history and legacy of the famous portrait of Prudence Crandall. Our interpreter for this portion of the visit will be Lisa Joseph, the curator of the exhibit.

    Exploring the life of Prudence Crandall (1803-1890), Connecticut’s State Heroine, prompts relevant reflection on life in America throughout history. Her commitment to teaching African-American women made her a national symbol for abolition, and local response was swift and strong in its opposition. Harassment and mob violence forced the school to close in 1834. Prudence Crandall’s legacy in legislation and court battles includes the 1833 CT “Black Law”, the 1857 Dredd Scott arguments, and also the 1954 Brown Vs. Board of Education of Topeka.

    I said in my heart, here are my convictions. What shall I do? Shall I be inactive and permit prejudice, the mother of abominations, to remain undisturbed? Or shall I venture to enlist in the ranks of those who with the Sword of Truth dare hold combat with prevailing iniquity? I contemplated for a while the manner in which I might best serve the people of color. As wealth was not mine, I saw no other means of benefiting them, than by imparting to those of my own sex that were anxious to learn, all the instruction I might be able to give, however small the amount.         - PRUDENCE CRANDALL, 1833

    WHEN:
    Saturday, September 29; 10:00-11:30am Tour; 11:45 Optional Brunch at DayBreaks Diner

    Come join other mothers of young children for a morning of play and socializing!  The National Building Museum, across the street from Judiciary Square Metro, has two exhibits designed especially for young children, as well as a Great Hall where groups can spread a blanket and children can run around.  Visiting the Great Hall is free, and access to the two exhibits costs $7 per child and $10 per adult.  The two exhibits are the Building Zone, a hands-on introduction to the building arts for children ages 2-6, and Play Work Build, for slightly older children who would enjoy using big and small building blocks to create forts or smaller models of buildings.  The Yale group will meet in the Great Hall, and those who want to explore the exhibits with their children can go from there.   Others can stay in the Great Hall and watch the children play.  Please sign up through this link, but feel free to come even if you haven’t signed up.

    Celebrating Bolcolm in Paris: Rayanne Dupuis, soprano

    Rayanne Dupuis, soprano & Guy Livingston, pianist honour the 80th birthday of a titan of American classical music, William Bolcom. William Bolcom and his wife Joan Morris will be in attendance, and Bolcom has composed for us a set of songs which we will be premiering. The music encompasses many styles - much is quite “jazzy” in feel, especially his Cabaret Songs, of which we will performing a selection. There will be a Q and A with the composer during the event and then an informal drink after the concert. It should be a properly festive event!

    It is highly advisable to reserve a spot ahead of time for the concert.  https://www.monabismarck.org/events/a-bolcom-birthday-celebration-in-song

    ***

    William Bolcom

    William Bolcom (b. 1938) is one of the most versatile contemporary American composers, writing chamber music, piano works, song cycles, concertos, music theatre, opera, and symphonies, displaying a mastery of many different compositional styles.

    Although not given to radical experimentation, he consciously avoids blindly following European styles, whether old or contemporary. He describes Charles Ives as his greatest influence, and in his operas and stage works he chooses to set pieces about American characters by American authors, and includes idioms such as ragtime and jazz in his works. In addition to this wide stylistic diversity, his works often display a trenchant sense of humor. He is also a noted performer, and in 1973 his recording of the complete piano music of Gershwin was named Stereo Review's Record of the Year. He and his wife mezzo-soprano Joan Morris have made over 20 recordings of American popular song.

    Bolcom began studying composition with John Verrall at the age of 11. After receiving his bachelor's degree from the University of Washington, he studied with Darius Milhaud at Mills College. In 1960, Milhaud took Bolcom to Paris, where he also worked with Olivier Messiaen. In 1961 Bolcom went on to study with Leland Smith at Stanford. After earning his doctorate in composition there in 1964, he won the Marc Blitzstein Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters for Dynamite Tonite, a piece that shows the influence of Milhaud and the Parisian cabarets. (His Casino Paradise, written in 1990, while still cabaret-style, shows more of an individual voice.) He returned to the Paris Conservatoire in 1964, and graduated in 1965, winning the second prize in that year's composition competition, as well as the first of two Guggenheim Fellowships. Bolcom won two Koussevitzky Foundation Awards, in 1976 and 1993, for the First Piano Quartet, and the Lyric Concerto for flute and orchestra, respectively.

    He has been commissioned by many of America's greatest musical institutions, including the orchestras of Philadelphia, St. Louis, Seattle, New York, Baltimore, Boston, and the Lyric Opera of Chicago. His commissions include numerous works for some of the greatest singers of our time, including Placido Domingo, Marilyn Horne, and Catherine Malfitano.

    In 1988, he won the Pulitzer Prize in music for his 12 New Etudes for Piano. His most ambitious composition, which occupied him for 25 years, is a complete setting of William Blake's Songs of Innocence and of Experience, for soloists, chorus, and orchestra, which received its premiere at the Stuttgart Opera in 1984. A recording of the work, featuring the orchestras and choruses of the University of Michigan conducted by Leonard Slatkin, won three Grammy Awards in 2006, for Best Choral Performance, Best Classical Contemporary Composition, and Best Classical Album. In 2007, Musical America named Bolcom composer of the year.

    Bolcom has composed three operas, commissioned by the Lyric Opera of Chicago, all of which he wrote with librettist and long-time collaborator, Arnold Weinstein. McTeague (1992), conducted by Dennis Russell Davies, starred Ben Heppner and Catherine Malfitano. Weinstein collaborated with playwright Arthur Miller on the libretto for A View from the Bridge (1999), which was subsequently presented by the Metropolitan Opera in 2002. His third opera, A Wedding, is based on the film of the same name by Robert Altman, who worked on the libretto with Weinstein. It received its premiere in Chicago in 2004. His latest opera, Dinner at Eight (based on the play by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber), was premiered in March 2017 at Minnesota Opera. The European premiere is scheduled at the Wexford Opera Festival, fall 2018.

    From 1973 to 2008, Bolcom taught at the University of Michigan. He became a full professor there in 1983, and in 1994 he was named the Ross Lee Finney Distinguished University Professor of Music. Bolcom also holds honorary doctorates from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and Albion College.

    One World Trade Center

    YW-CT - Guided Tour of One World Trade Center, NYC

    Guided Tour of One World Trade Center, New York City – April 28th – YaleWomen Connecticut is thrilled to announce a Museum Trail stop for Saturday, April 28 at the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan. Join NEH Public Scholar and New York Times bestseller author Judith Dupré (MDiv ‘11) on a special, behind-the-scenes tour of the Trade Center, the most complex and intensely scrutinized project in recent memory. 

    Judith will take us through the controversies, negotiations, and agreements that ultimately yielded the triumphant One World Trade Center, the most advanced skyscraper in the world—and one with an impossible task: to stand for everything that was lost, and reclaimed, after 9/11. The only writer given unfettered access to the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey’s site, archives, and suppliers, she will share insights from the experts. You will hear about this tower and the other eight structures on the site just as Judith did—from those who designed and built it. 

    We will consider the sixteen-acre site in its entirety, and discover the many physical and symbolic connections that exist between One WTC and Two, Three, Four, and Seven World Trade Center; the National September 11 Memorial & Museum; Liberty Park; St. Nicholas National Shrine; and the Transportation Hub. Judith will address the challenges of writing about a place that is wholly new—yet irrevocably bound to the past.  

    WHEN: Saturday, April 28; 10:30 Tour with Judith Dupré

    WHERE: We will meet at northeast corner of Liberty and Greenwich Streets (Outside Four World Trade Center).

    COST: $25

    PLEASE NOTE:  Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring an umbrella. If it's raining, we can take some (not all) indoor routes through the WTC.

    RSVP: to Karen Warner ([email protected]) by April 20th. The minimum number for this event is 20. If we do not reach that number, the event will be cancelled.

    After the tour, we welcome everyone to gather together for an optional brunch in Eataly NYC Downtown:

    4 World Trade Center

    101 Liberty Street, Floor 3

    New York, NY 10007

    https://www.eataly.com/us_en/stores/nyc-downtown/

    Eataly has a number of dining options: various upscale food courts as well as a fine dining room. It will likely be difficult to seat the entire group in the same area, but we encourage everyone (strongly) to eat at Eataly to avoid a postprandial search expedition!

    In the afternoon you might consider visiting the following:

    • 9/11 Memorial Museum: You will need to purchase tickets in advance for this. They are $25.
    • One World Trade Center Observatory: Tickets are $34.

    Barnum Museum

    YaleWomen CT - Museum Trail - Barnum Museum

    YaleWomen would like to announce our next stop on the Museum Trail will be the (rescheduled!) visit to the historic Barnum Museum in Bridgeport, CT. Join us on Saturday, January 27 for a private tour with the museum’s Executive Director, Kathleen Maher, followed by a hard hat tour of the distinctive building's restoration.

    Conceived and constructed by American entrepreneur, showman, and politician P.T. Barnum (1810-1891), The Barnum Museum has served an international audience since 1893. P.T. Barnum's impact reaches deep into our American heritage and the story of his vast collection and contributions are preserved in his Bridgeport museum. The ornate, exotic building is a distinguishing feature of the City of Bridgeport.

    In 2010 the Barnum Museum was struck by an EF1 tornado, significantly damaging the historic landmark. The building sustained additional damage from hurricanes Irene and Sandy. While going through the re-building and re-envisioning process, a portion of the museum’s collection is on view in an ancillary space located BEHIND the museum in the adjacent People's United Bank Gallery. The 5,000-foot site houses thousands of objects that were out-loaded from the museum's historic building for safety and conservation following the tornado. Tour limited to ages 15 and up due to the rough state of the construction site.

    (Also: Barnum and Bridgeport are getting the Hollywood treatment. The Greatest Showman musical biopic starring Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum comes to theaters December 20.)

    WHEN:
    Saturday, January 27; 10:30pm Tour; 12:15 Optional Brunch

    WHERE:

    behind the Barnum Museum

    820 Main Street
    Bridgeport, Connecticut 06604

    (*The Museum offices and exhibit gallery are now located in the People's United Bank Gallery (the modern wing at the rear of the historic building). Follow signs pointing to the entrance from the plaza.)

    http://www.barnum-museum.org/

    COST:

    Estimated $25 or less ($250 honorarium will be divided by the number of attendees; 10 person minimum);

    Optional pay-as-you-go brunch at 12:15 across the street from the museum at:

    YaleWomen-CT - Hunger 101 - Connecticut Food Bank Service Event

    In Connecticut, one in seven households can’t always afford the food they need. Join us for a repeat of our popular community service project addressing hunger in the state of Connecticut.  This event will begin with a volunteer project – sorting food at the Connecticut Food Bank’s Wallingford warehouse – and will be followed by participation in the Connecticut Food Bank’s Hunger 101 interactive group learning experience. Founded in 1982, the Connecticut Food Bank partners with food retailers, growers, donors and volunteers to source food and distribute it in Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London and Windham Counties through a network of community-based programs, including food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, residential programs and day programs that serve adults and children. Hunger 101 gives people a taste of what food insecurity—or hunger—really is. Participants walk in someone else’s shoes and see firsthand what it’s like to struggle with poverty and food insecurity in Connecticut. Hunger 101 captures the daily stress of hunger as you learn how to feed a family for a day with limited resources.

    Date:  Saturday, November 11, 2017 

    Time:  9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

    **** Founded in 2011, YaleWomen is a community of alums – at the global and chapter levels – across Yale College and the Graduate & Professional Schools, and across years, geography and personal and professional interests as well as a broad range of different experiences, perspectives, and opinions. As part of its mission, YaleWomen is committed to advancing women’s voices and perspectives. YaleWomen encourages its members at the global, national, and local levels to advance the issues they believe in by engaging in the public policy and electoral process, advocating for changes in particular areas of society, and providing education about such matters. As a 501c3, YaleWomen must do so within the constraints imposed by IRS rules regarding prohibiting lobbying, advocacy, and partisan activity. One of YaleWomen’s greatest strengths is inclusivity – bringing together and learning from the plurality of our voices, in ways that are both respectful and civil. Inclusivity is, in fact, one of YaleWomen’s core values. The plurality of voices – Yale women alums’ voices – produces democracy! ****

    YaleWomen DC: October Salon

     YaleWomen DC has partnered with the DC Chapter of the Alumnae Network for Harvard Women for a second Yale/Harvard Women's Salon. Inspired by the Enlightenment Salons of the 18th century, join curious and engaging women to reflect and share perspectives on timely and meaningful topics over wine and happy hour fare.  The $7 ticket fee covers the host's costs. Based on the success of the first salon (and the waiting list for tickets), we are offering two salons in October--one in Virginia and one in Maryland. The salons will feature the same content and structure--just pick the most convenient location for you! This month's topic is "authenticity." Please read this article before our October salon:  The Authenticity Paradox

    This event is limited to women alumnae of Harvard and Yale.

    There are TWO locations!  Bethesda and Arlington.  To register, use these links:

    Mystic Seaport

    (http://www.mysticseaport.org/)

    75 Greenmanville Avenue, Mystic, CT

     

    Join us as Elysa takes us on a journey at the juxtaposition of two current exhibits, On Land and On Sea and SeaChange, one a “flat” photography show featuring images of women from the last century and the other a more “experimental” approach for a history museum.

     

    As Director of Exhibits at Mystic Seaport, Elysa is responsible for creating and delivering an ongoing program of dynamic, interdisciplinary exhibits, in formal galleries, family activity spaces, and on vessels and grounds. With the opening of the new Thompson Exhibition Building (designed by Centerbrook Architects and Planners, the architectural firm that also designed Kroon Hall at the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies), and the design and production of the inaugural exhibit in the Collins Gallery, SeaChange, Elysa and her team are transforming informal learning experiences for Mystic Seaport visitors.

     

    10 am – Meet in the lobby of the Thompson Exhibition Building at the North Entrance on Route 27 to purchase your tickets.  Elysa will tee us up for what we need to observe and look for in the two very different exhibits we will visit.

     

    Noonish – lunch and afternoon on your own.  There are different dining options at the Seaport, including the Galley.  Many may choose to eat together and continue the conversation! There is no shortage of things to do and explore at the Seaport – especially for kids and families!

     

    Admission

     

    Adult – $28.95
    Senior (ages 65+) – $26.95
    Youth (ages 4-14) – $18.95
    Children (3 and younger) – Free

     

    On Land and On Sea: A Century of Women in the Rosenfeld Collection

     

    Professional photographers Morris Rosenfeld and Sons are best known for their stunning images of large racing yachts under sail. But they also captured images of people and everyday events, both off the water and on. On Land and On Sea: A Century of Women in the Rosenfeld Collection displays 70 images of ordinary and exceptional girls and women for the first time. From aviators and athletes to telephone operators training and suffragettes on the march in New York City, each photo provides a fascinating glimpse into the social history of 20th-century women as depicted in commercial photography, from young girls having fun messing about on small boats to fashion models and society matrons.

     

    Sea Change 

     

    SeaChange presents a range of striking, surprising, and unusual objects drawn from the rich collections of Mystic Seaport. In keeping with the bold design, clean lines, and natural materials of the Thompson Building, the exhibit design uses large, free-standing abstract structures evocative of sails or icebergs to frame each central artifact, taking advantage of the soaring heights in the Collins Gallery. The overall effect is visually stunning, an inviting space that entices visitors to contemplate, discover, discuss and return to the exhibit.  SeaChange extends the sensory approach beyond the visual. The custom-created interactives will give people the chance to peer inside a 1740s English ship model, test the principles behind dazzling World War I ship camouflage, and zoom-in to see the tiny carved cuts on modern miniature figureheads. A range of public programs will complement the gallery experience and further explore the “sea change” that links stories from around the world to our own.

    Webinar

    YaleWomen Webinar Lean In for Compensation: Salary Negotiation

    “I asked: ‘Why did a man and woman earn different salaries?’ He said: ‘I made the same offer. He negotiated; she accepted.’”
    Donna Dubinsky ’77, speaking at YaleWomen’s 2013 inaugural conference, “Vision, Values, Voice: Women Changing a Changing World.”

    YaleWomen presents…
    Lean In for Compensation: Salary Negotiation

    Join us for our next one-hour webinar, Lean In for Compensation: Salary Negotiation, with Deb Ellis ’78 (’82 JD, NYU School of Law).
    Friday, June 16­, 2017
    1 pm eastern

    Typically, women working full time in nearly every occupation in the United States are paid just 80% of what men are paid. For women of color and for mothers, the pay gap is even wider. (Source: http://www.aauw.org/research/the-simple-truth-about-the-gender-pay-gap/)

    Research shows that women are much less likely than men to negotiate their salaries, compounding earnings differentials throughout their careers. In this one-hour webinar, you will learn specific strategies for negotiating salary and other job benefits, including job title and workplace flexibility. You will increase your negotiating skills by observing a mock negotiation.

    Deb Ellis brings her broad experience and expertise as a teacher, women’s rights lawyer, and law school career counselor to this webinar. During her career, Deb has served as Assistant Dean for Public Service at NYU School of Law, Legal Director of the ACLU-NJ, Legal Director of NOW Legal Defense Fund, adjunct professor at Yale College and NYU School of Law, and Executive Director of the NJ Coalition to End Homelessness. Deb currently serves as Director of Operations of NJ LEEP, which helps students graduate from high school, attend and graduate from competitive colleges, and begin careers. Deb has spoken and published widely on public interest legal careers and on women’s rights, and has received several awards for her leadership in social justice, including a 2011 White House Champion of Change Award.

    Deb will engage us in a discussion of topics, including:

    • Gender differences and how they affect how women think about negotiating, whether they negotiate, and how they negotiate
    • The concept of negotiation, and how to make it a win-win experience
    • The implications of the differentials in salary and other benefits throughout a woman’s career

    You will be able to ask questions during the webinar via chat, get advice and gain a better understanding of what is available to you during the negotiating process. You can submit questions in advance by writing to [email protected] before Friday, June 9th.

    Barnum Museum

    YaleWomen CT - Museum Trail at the Barnum Museum in Bridgeport

    The next stop on the YaleWomen Museum Trail will be the historic Barnum Museum in Bridgeport, CT. Join us on Saturday, May 6 for a private tour with the museum’s Executive Director Kathleen Maher, followed by a hard hat tour of the distinctive building's restoration. Ms. Maher has over 29 years’ experience working at museums that are additionally recognized as National Historic Sites. She is considered a leading authority on P.T. Barnum history and speaks extensively on Barnum subjects throughout the United States, including at the Yale school of Art.

     

    Conceived and constructed by American entrepreneur, showman, and politician P.T. Barnum (1810-1891), The Barnum Museum has served an international audience since 1893. P.T. Barnum's impact reaches deep into our American heritage and the story of his vast collection and contributions are preserved in his Bridgeport museum. The ornate, exotic building is a distinguishing feature of the City of Bridgeport.

     

    In 2010 the Barnum Museum was struck by an EF1 tornado, significantly damaging the historic landmark. The building sustained additional damage from hurricanes Irene and Sandy. While going through the re-building and re-envisioning process, a portion of the museum’s collection is on view in an ancillary space located BEHIND the museum in the adjacent People's United Bank Gallery. The 5,000-foot site houses thousands of objects that were out-loaded from the museum's historic building for safety and conservation following the tornado. (Limited to ages 15 and up due to the rough state of the construction site.)

     

    WHEN:
    Saturday, May 6; 1:00pm Tour; 11:30 Brunch

    WHERE:

    behind the Barnum Museum

    820 Main Street
    Bridgeport, Connecticut 06604

    (*The Museum offices and exhibit gallery are now located in the People's United Bank Gallery (the modern wing at the rear of the historic building). Follow signs pointing to the entrance from the plaza.)

     

    http://www.barnum-museum.org/


    COST:

    Estimated $25 or less ($250 honorarium will be divided by the number of attendees; 10 person minimum);

    Optional pay-as-you-go brunch at 11:30 across the street from the museum at:

    First Lady Dolley Madison is often remembered as a hostess who saved the White House portrait of George Washington from British vandalism during the War of 1812.  But in fact, she was the most influential woman in America during the nation’s formative years—a national, almost mythic figure. The unheard stories come to life on this fascinating tour of artworks, books, documents, clothing, jewelry, and housewares related to the life of Dolley Madison. Experience what it is like to take part in a “Wednesday night squeezes,” her popular social gatherings that drew a wide range of people to “squeeze” into the President’s mansion and encouraged informal diplomacy.

    The New York Historical Society’s fourth floor has recently reopened as the Center for Women’s History, a cutting-edge museum and scholarship hub. This landmark initiative is the country’s first permanent, public exhibition and educational center dedicated to women’s history. It highlights the significance of women’s history to the study of the American past and demonstrate how women across the spectrum of race, class, and culture exercised power and brought about change even before they could access the ballot box. Guided by a committee of distinguished historians and informed by the latest research, the Center combines permanent installations, temporary exhibitions, and a vibrant program of talks and debates to enrich the cultural landscape of New York City.

    Russia’s Women: The Rulers and The Ruled

    The situation of women in Russia has changed dramatically from the reign of Catherine the Great through the Soviet era to the present time. It will continue to unfold – from the time we announce this event until our actual conversation – as we navigate the rapidly changing and sometimes uncertain world in which we live today.

    Join us for what will be a thought provoking conversation with

    Erin McBurney, PhD – ’81 BA, Yale College  

    and

    Nadine Fraser, MD – ’12 MPH, Yale School of Public Health

    Sunday afternoon, April 2, 2017

    2 – 4 pm

    At the Hartford home of Susan Lennon ’85 MPPM, School of Management.  The address will be provided to those who RSVP.

    RSVP no later than Sunday, March 26th to [email protected].

    Erin graduated from Yale College in 1981 and completed her doctorate in Russian History at Columbia University in 2014. She studied in Leningrad in 1979 and then returned to post-Communist Russia to conduct dissertation research. In between, she served in the US Marines, worked for the National Gallery of Art in Washington, and taught at the London School of Economics. Erin is now an independent scholar whose research focuses on female sovereignty in 18th –century Russia. She lives in Branford.

    Nadine was born in the Soviet Union, in the Far East city of Blagoveshchensk. After graduating from Amur State Medical Academy, she accepted a residency in St. Petersburg and worked in social medicine – with the most vulnerable, disabled, and chronically ill – in the midst of the full collapse of medical and public health systems in Russia in the 1990s. After marrying and moving to the US, Nadine worked with a major medical center in Western Massachusetts, first as the lead Russian interpreter for immigrant and refugee populations and later as a resident physician. After YSPH, she managed the Community Health department for the Connecticut Hospital Association, improving health equity and access to medical services for the underserved populations. Nadine now works with Hartford Healthcare Corporation improving healthcare quality as well as providing analytical support. She lives in Suffield.

    Inspired by New York City’s venerable Russian Tea Room, our potluck refreshments will be tea sandwiches (last names beginning with A through L) and sweets (last names beginning with M through Z).

    YW Northern California Book Night: "Year of Yes"

    Book Night: Year of Yes

    Why wait for New Year's Day to start fresh? Say YES to 2017 now! YaleWomen in Northern California are kicking off the New Year reading television writer and producer Shonda Rhimes' Year of Yes, her poignant, intimate, and hilarious memoir.

    Rhimes' story starts with life before her Year of Yes, beginning with her nerdy, book-loving childhood creating imaginary friends, through to her domination of Thursday night television, including Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder. But despite her wild success and general badassery, something was holding her back. She chronicles her Year of Yes challenge: when the introverted Rhimes says "yes" to giving the Dartmouth Commencement speech, "yes" to her health, "yes" to play, and "yes" to exploring, applauding, and loving her true self. Start your New Year with a "Yes" challenge and join us for Book Night in January!

    We have two confirmed gathering locations in San Francisco and Los Gatos

    Please RSVP at https://ywbooknight-rhimes.eventbrite.com. Reading not required ;-)

    We aim to organize groups throughout the Bay Area, and are limited by the number of hostesses who volunteer. Please consider hosting a small group of 6-10 Yale women. Contact us at [email protected] so we can help coordinate attendees.

    Rabbi Leah Cohen, Executive Director and Senior Jewish Chaplain

     of the Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale University!

    She’s speaking on Thursday, January 19, 2017, at 7 pm, at Houston Hillel.

                                                       (Ida & William Zinn Building, 1700 Bissonnet Houston TX 77005)

                                                           She’ll meet with YaleWomen at 6 pm, at the same location.

    Her topic for us: Her Story

    The power of the individual example is undeniably one of our greatest assets. As women, our stories are full of courage and self-sacrifice, of hard-earned triumphs and embarrassments, of inspiring lessons and moments of insight. Come for an evening of sharing, learning and laughing together.

     

    Please join all our co-sponsors to hear her at 7 pm, too – you’ll be in great company!

    Rabbi Cohen will give us an evening of learning and reflection, exploring tropes of past civic leadership and their lessons for today. 

    She will present on "I Have A Dream" and "Im Tirtzu**": The Call to Action in the Jewish and Black Charismatic Narratives".

     

    Refreshments (kosher) will be served!

    Thanks to all the co-sponsors, there will be no charge for this event—but we very much appreciate your prompt RSVP so we can finalize arrangements and have plenty of refreshments!

           PLEASE RSVP to Lisa Stone ([email protected]) by January 16.

     

    **“Im tirtzu” means “if you will it”; it is the first part of a statement by Theodor Herzl.

                                  The full sentence is, “If you will it, it is no dream.”

    YWUtah - Brunch with Patti Russo

    YaleWomen Utah is once again thrilled to have Patti Russo, of the Women's Campaign School at Yale (WCSYale), come visit us here in SLC on Sunday, January 15th! We will be hosting an informal potluck brunch with Patti beginning at 11:30am at the YWCA of Utah, and would ask those in attendance to bring a dish and/or beverage.

    The free event is not only for those women who might currently be interested in running for political office, but is also for those who support greater participation by women in elected office. Patti would like to cast her net wide while sharing WCSYale's message: Get Inspired! Get Trained! Get Elected!

    Patti's visit, just days before Inauguration Day, will surely be every bit as engaging and uplifting as Patti's last stop in Utah. However, as the United States now ranks 99th on the list of countries with the most women in elected office, the issue of women in politics is an urgent one, and Patti's visit takes on a more serious tone following the November elections. We are excited about all that Patti will share with us about this critical time for women in the political arena!

    Some additional information about the state of women in politics: New Republic's "For Women in Politics, the Glass Ceiling Is Now Higher Than Ever"

    The Women's Campaign School at Yale University (WCSYale) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to increase the number and influence of women in elected and appointed office in the United States and around the globe. Its signature program is a five day, non-partisan, issue-neutral leadership political campaign training intensive and is held at the Yale Law School. This year the Women's Campaign School at Yale University celebrates over twenty years of inspiring and training women to lead.

    YaleWomen Greater Philadelphia: Women in Politics, a Discussion

    Stepping off of our of our July conversation with Patti Russo, director of the Women’s Campaign School at Yale, and on the heels of the election, please join us as we gather to discuss how we can support women's voices and perspectives in politics from a local to a national level.

    You will remember that the Women's Campaign School at Yale University is a non-partisan, issue-neutral leadership program, whose mission is to increase the number and influence of women in elected and appointed office in the United States and around the globe. While the number of women in Congress and the House of Representatives has dramatically increased over the last 20 years, the United States still ranks 82nd worldwide in the percentage of women in our national legislature.  The recent election has not improved that statistic!

    There is plenty that can be done in addition to running for office, and we hope this conversation will help develop some ideas we can move forward with.

    YaleWomen Presents: Women in Politics Webinar

    Join YaleWomen for a lively non-partisan webinar conversation with Q&A about the importance of Women in Politics with Patricia Russo, Executive Director, Women’s Campaign School at Yale University, and Kathryn Lofton, PhD, Professor of Religious Studies, American Studies, History, Divinity, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and Faculty of Arts and Sciences Deputy for Diversity and Faculty Development, Yale University.

    In 2016, women remain underrepresented in elective political office, comprising only 19.4% of the US Congress, 24.4% of statewide elective offices, and 24.6% of state legislatures.  Do you know that when women run for political office, they win at the same rate as men? But women in the United States are not running. Why not?  What barriers—both internal and external—are holding women back?  Does it matter whether women are creating the laws we live by? Do women govern differently than men? 

    Register today to join this live conversation. Send questions for the panelists to: [email protected].

    October 6, 2016
    6:00 - 7:30pm

    Facebook RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/1753898071533470/

    About the book: On the evening of November 4, 2008, as news of Barack Obama's presidential victory spread, television footage depicted the emotional reactions of people across the country and the globe. As Obama gave his acceptance speech in Grant Park that night, the camera focused on those in the audience who were overjoyed, tears streaming down their faces. People cheered. Spontaneous and joyful celebrations broke out in the streets. Change had finally come.

    Analysts describe Barack Obama's success as "unheard of" -- a meteoric rise -- leaving many in the elite political circles astonished at what he had accomplished in his campaign. With his success, many questions arose: How was a junior senator from Chicago able to do this? Why does he evoke such strong reactions? What cultural shifts took place in American society for this to happen? Do we now live in a post-racial society, and what will this mean for the next generation?

    In Obama on Our Minds, Dr. Lori A. Barker '86 leads a team of expert multicultural theorists and researchers studying racism, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, and immigration to answer these questions and analyze the enormous impact of this groundbreaking event in our nation's history.

    About the author: Dr. Lori A. Barker '86 is a professor in the Psychology and Sociology Department at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Cal Poly Pomona). She received her BA in psychology from Yale University and her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from UCLA. After receiving her degree, Dr. Barker spent one additional year at UCLA as a National Institute of Mental Health postdoctoral research fellow. Dr. Barker is a licensed clinical psychologist has a small private practice in Riverside, California.

    Museum Trail - Bruce - Women artists

    Join us for the 8th stop on our Museum Trail – we are circling back to the Bruce Museum of Arts and Science in Greenwich.  Susan Ball '78 PhD, Deputy Director, will lead us on tour of their new exhibit “Her Crowd: New Art by Women from Our Neighbors’ Private Collections”.

    Only yesterday, it seems, one was hard-pressed to name more than a handful of successful women artists; now the list would be extensive, and the choices rich and varied. Although numerous recent exhibitions have featured women’s art, scant attention has been paid to the collecting of art created by women. In fact, private collections are in the process of being dramatically transformed. Greenwich and nearby communities in Fairfield and Westchester counties are home to a number of the finest contemporary collections, and thus to some of the most exciting art being made today.

    Her Crowd will offer the rare opportunity to see what some of America’s most influential collectors of contemporary art consider beautiful, important, and compelling.  Follow this link for additional information: https://brucemuseum.org/site/exhibitions_detail/her-crowd-new-art-by-women-from-our-neighbors-private-collections

    The Broad Museum in Los Angeles, CA

    YaleWomenLA curated tour of Cindy Sherman at the Broad

    Please join YaleWomenLA on Thursday, September 29 at 6 PM for a fabulous private tour of the Cindy Sherman exhibition, Imitation of Life with the curator of the show at The Broad Museum in downtown Los Angeles. Tickets are $35 and reflect the actual cost of the event. Please note that we will be unable to process any refunds. Tickets can be purchased on the Eventbrite link below.

    The Broad’s first special exhibition is a comprehensive survey of the work of artist Cindy Sherman. Cindy Sherman: Imitation of Life is the first major museum show of Sherman’s work in Los Angeles in nearly 20 years, and the exhibition fills The Broad’s first-floor galleries with 120 works drawn primarily from the Broad collection with key loans from other institutions.

    Organized by guest curator Philipp Kaiser, and taking cues from Los Angeles’ role as the mecca of the film industry, this exhibition foregrounds Cindy Sherman's engagement with 20th century popular film and celebrity. The exhibition features an expansive representation of Sherman’s photographs from throughout her influential career of more than four decades, as well as Office Killer, the 1997 feature film directed by the artist. Her widely known Untitled Film Stills series, as well as the less known rear projection series, both inspired by cinema of the 1950s and 1960s, play a central conceptual role in the show, and the show includes many works never before exhibited in Los Angeles.

    NorCal Book Night: Euphoria

    Desire – for knowledge, fame or another person – is only fleetingly felt, in a moment of Euphoria. In this tale of euphoria, three young anthropologists meet in 1930's New Guinea and settle in to jointly study the Tam, a female-dominated tribe. Their work draws them together, but their diverse research methods bring them into conflict, as does the love triangle that develops. King uses events in the life of Margaret Mead to inspire this intellectual and erotic tale of the moral contradictions that propelled encounters with remote peoples in the heyday of Western anthropology.

    Bridging her psychology research at Harvard Medical School and current research on gender bias, Sharon Melnick, Ph.D. will provide insights on how to navigate obstacles so you can advance and be recognized for your talents. 

    Learn how to:

    • Determine whether barriers to recognition are due to Confidence, Influence, or Bias (and get fixes for each…)
    • Close the gap between ‘knowing in your mind you are competent’ and not ‘feeling confident’
    • Stay poised, not reactive, even in the face of frustrating or intimidating people
    • Prevent your confidence from being worn down by workplace interactions
    • Shift from being self-critical to being a critical thinker so you have excellence without exhaustion

    And, as a BONUS, take the What Type of Leader are You assessment for personalized recommendations to match your leadership type. Then join the webinar to get practical strategies to live up to your potential. 

    Presenter: Sharon Melnick, Ph.D. (Yale College 1988)

Volunteers are encouraged to help the clients select and pack items and hardy volunteers can also help them load up their cars, vans and trucks.  (The Yale Day of Service includes sites throughout the city if this location is not convenient for you.)
    About the Yale Day of Service:  In the spring of 2015, at nearly 300 sites around the world, members of the Yale community helped to make their neighborhoods a better place by participating in the Yale Day of Service. This year, the Yale Club of Washington is hosting a wide range of service opportunities, making a direct difference in our local community.  Please join us on May 7, 2016.  This is a great opportunity to serve at your local community organization, join a local cause, or start serving.  Site Coordinators are needed and we welcome family friendly, young-alumni, and a wide range of service sites.  Interested?  Contact René Jones MPH ‘07, Vice President of Community Service and Regional Coordinator for Yale Day of Service.
