Last night’s opening of our office’s new exhibit, “Moving Forward, Looking Back“, was an extraordinary, energetic evening dedicated to the women of Washington. Governor Gregoire, first woman insurance commissioner Deborah Senn, first woman lands commissioner Jennifer Belcher, and relatives of Dixy Lee Ray and Belle Reeves shared inspiring stories … and there were plenty of “huzzahs” from costumed ladies in the crowd.
If you missed the event, which celebrated women’s achievements in government, watch it below or catch the program on TVW today at 3:30 p.m., Saturday at 4 p.m., and Sunday at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.
The free exhibit, located in the Secretary of State’s Office on the second floor of the Legislative Building in Olympia, will be open to the public throughout 2010 in honor of the centennial of women’s suffrage in Washington State.
