Movimiento Ciudadano’s National Women’s Conference

DCM Laura Dogu spoke on May 23 to an audience of 300 women at Movimiento Ciudadano’s National Women’s Conference.  The DCM reviewed the history of women’s political participation in the United States, including her own grandmother’s efforts to fight for the right to vote for all women, and also highlighted Embassy women’s outreach program.  The DCM told the group that “Countries are more peaceful and prosperous when women are accorded full and equal rights.”
