About this Item

Title

  • Legislating in Heels--An Anecdotal Journal: The Honorable Constance "Connie" Morella

Summary

  • In her talk, Connie Morella recounted tales from her trajectory from Maryland's state senate to the U.S. House of Representatives and onward to an ambassadorship for the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. This is a tribute to all women for National Women's History Month, featuring stories of historic firsts for women. Although many in the audience were familiar with the first woman congresswoman, Jeanette Rankin, no one could name the first woman in this country to ask for the right to vote. Also enlightening to everyone present was the "Coya, Come Home" letter.
