In September of 1922, Viola Ross Napier, a schoolteacher, and mother of four, and Bessie Kempton Crowell, a reporter for the Atlanta Constitution, became the first-ever women elected to serve in the Georgia General Assembly. While iconic, they were just two of 236. And nearly 100 years later, representation for women has increased to just over 30% in the Georgia General Assembly.
Join us for the Women United Day at the Capitol and hear from the women who are currently serving in the Georgia House and Senate. Listen to their empowering stories about their journey to public office and how they are fighting for women, children and communities here in Georgia. Later you will have the opportunity to visit with the state representative and senator who represents you at the Capitol to promote issues important to Women United and Child Well-Being.
