Call for Women's Caucus histories: The WC has a rich and vibrant history that we do not want to see lost as we move forward with revitalized energy and focus. If you know pieces of the WC history or have stories that you would like to share with the newer members, please let us know! We are in the planning stages of a website and we would love to be able to post not just our current and future activities, but a bit of our colorful past as well.
