Women in Networking

Mar 7, 2013


Besides being a Pasadena Weekly columnist and having her one woman show Now That She’s Gone, Ellen Snortland is a goodwill ambassador for the National Women’s History Project, which began in 1980 and successfully lobbied Congress to designate March as National Women’s History Month.

To celebrate her-story and our stories, we found the following poem that Ellen passed along in her email to be perfectly appropriate.


asset_upload_file840_12146Women’s dearest possession is life,
And since it is given to her but once
She must live as to feel no torturing regret
For years without purpose,
So live as not to be scarred with the shame of
A cowardly and trivial past
So live that dying she can say:
All my live and all my strength
Was given to the finest cause in the world
The liberation of womankind.

Alice Paul, 1885-1977
American Suffrage Leader
Author of the Equal Rights Amendment, 1923
