Women's History Month Event

The General Federation of Womens Clubs is proud to present noted author Elaine F. Weiss for its annual Womens History Month event on Thursday, March 11, 2010, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. The event will take place at GFWCs historic headquarters at 1734 N Street NW, in Washington D.C.

Elaine Weiss will share the fascinating results of her research on the forgotten 'farmerette' of World War I. Her widely-praised book Fruits of Victory: The Womans Land Army of America (2008) details how thousands of women replaced the male agricultural workers who were called for wartime service from 1917 to 1920.

Her engaging story of this diverse group of women is drawn from a wealth of primary sources, including several GFWC publications she researched at GFWCs Womens History and Resource Center. Following her presentation, Elaine will sign copies of her book, which will be available for sale at the event for $29.95. Light refreshments will be served

This event is open to the public. If you would like to attend, please R.S.V.P. to RSVP@GFWC.org or 202/347-3168.

For more information, please contact GFWC Senior Director of Public Affairs Michele J. Mount at MMount@GFWC.org or 202/327-3168 ext. 149.
