Women’s Day at the Capitol - Wednesday, March 14

As kids we thought this model was called "The Invisible Woman", but it is actually "The Visible Woman" and that is what all women should be: Visible.
"Each year, the Permanent Commission on the Status of Women brings together legislators, public policy experts, members of community organizations and individuals to examine key issues facing women in Connecticut, including: women and the recession; family-friendly work policies; women’s health and safety; gender discrimination; and economic security. The event is free, and members of the general public are encouraged to attend this valuable opportunity for civic engagement."
And, although I am not sure why, people traditionally wear red jackets.

I know.... weird.
