Fifty years of Title IX: 37 Words that changed America

Friends of Susan B. Anthony celebrate Women’s Equality Day 2022

The Friends of Susan B. Anthony is happy to announce that we will celebrate Women’s Equality Day (Aug. 26) with our annual luncheon on Saturday, Aug. 27. This event, which began as an informal birthday party for Susan B. Anthony over forty years ago, is now held in conjunction with the anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. Each year a local woman is recognized who exemplifies the spirit of Susan B. Anthony. This year, Sheila Payne will be honored for her community work on behalf of labor and fair housing.  

The featured speaker will be Dr. Elaine Turner, who is dean for the UF/IFAS College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. She will be discussing the momentous impact that Title IX has had on women’s education and sports. For further information, and instructions on how to register for the luncheon, please check our website at or contact Barbara Oberlander at 352-378-6447.
