ZCMCA Hosts Women’s History Program
On Tuesday, March 24, 2015 ZCMCA hosted a Women’s History Program at Kelly’s Downtown Lansing. The ladies in attendance enjoyed dinner together before being greeted by Club President Patricia Herring Jackson. Program Committee Member Angela Corley Moore presented a brief history on Zonta International and ZCMCA. Program Co-Chairperson Jeanette Patterson introduced all ZCMCA members in attendance before presenting Ms. Jolisa Brooks, a student majoring in Political Theory and Science Technology in Environmental Public Policy at Michigan State University’s James Madison College (A College of Public Affairs).
Ms. Brooks gave an awe inspiring presentation on Women’s Equality and Pay Equity. A question and answer session followed Ms. Brooks’ presentation. Attendees noted how impressed they were with the information that Ms. Brooks shared on Women’s issues and with her personal career studies. ZCMCA Members were thrilled with the comment by Ms. Brooks that upon her graduation in 2017 she would love to become a Zonta member. Participants also agreed with Ms. Brooks that Women’s rights and pay equality issues still remain in the 21st century. Ms. Brooks’ presentation reiterated that while we still have a long road to travel to be considered in the same arena as our male counterparts, we as American women do enjoy far more rights and privileges than women in foreign and underdeveloped countries. ZCMCA continues to advocate for Women’s Rights.
