We are proud and not surprised to learn that two of our fearless local Democratic leaders, Ward 2 Chair Ruth Dain and Ward 6 Chair Ba Barbara John, are to be honored with an award this year from the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women. Each year the Commission honors women who have made enduring contribuitions to community and political life in Massachusetts, and this year Ruth and Barbara will be recognized as Unsung Heroines.
The MCSW will honor and celebrate the Unsung Heroines from across the Commonwealth at the 2015 Unsung Heroines Ceremony on Wednesday, June 17 at the Massachusetts State House. The event will be held in the Great Hall from 1-4 p.m. with registration opening at 11:30 a.m. The day will include a speaking program, a collective photo of all Heroines on the Grand Staircase and a Just Desserts reception.
And congratulations Barbara!
