Mount Holyoke College

Delegates kicked off the Institute on Sunday, May 25, with remarks by Congresswoman Nita Lowey (MHC ’59), who commented: “When women are given opportunities to participate fully in an economy, their children go to school and their families thrive. When women have a chance to run a business, they gain confidence and a meaningful voice in civic decisions. When women assume governmental posts, they become champions of free institutions and equal opportunity.”
