My interests in progressive change for Wisconsin are numerous, including deep-seated support of women's health issues and reproductive rights and strong opposition to the recent efforts to erode voting rights in the state.
I have been actively involved in gender equality issues for many years, dating back to efforts to pass the E.R.A. in the 1970's. More recently I was part of the five-year struggle for passage of Compassionate Care for Rape Victims which was signed into law in March of 2008. I have been a member of the Wisconsin Alliance for Women's Health since its inception.
In March I attended the three day Wisconsin Leadership Development Project (WiLD) workshop in Green Lake representing Citizen Action Wisconsin and our Cooperative.
I am recently retired and live outside Chippewa Falls.
