Geraldine Ferraro to speak

WHEN: March 15, 7 p.m.
WHERE: Newcomb Hall Ballroom

Geraldine Ferraro, the first woman to run for vice president of the United States, will be the keynote speaker for the 2006 National Symposium on Women and Politics. Her talk is free and open to the public.

Ferraro earned a place in history in 1984 as the first female vice-presidential candidate on a national party ticket. She was first elected to Congress from New York’s Ninth Congressional District in Queens in 1978 and served three terms in the House of Representatives. In 1994, she was appointed the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Commission by President Clinton and served in that position through 1996. From 1996-98, she was a co-host of CNN’s Crossfire.

Ferraro’s talk, co-sponsored by the Center for Politics and the Woodrow Wilson Department of Politics, is part of the center’s National Symposium on Women and Politics, a yearlong series of national events exploring how women are changing American politics, both as politicians and as political insiders. For more information, contact the center at or 243-3539.
