Every year, the National Women's History Project (www.nwhp.org) selects a unifying theme to be shared with all who want to promote women's history. This year's theme presents the opportunity to weave women's stories-- individually and collectively--into the essential fabric of our nation's history. Accounts of the lives of individual women are important because they reveal exceptionally strong role models who share a more expansive vision of what a woman can do.
This year marks the 80th anniversary of National Assistance League. Assistance League has a history of many extraordinary members: Anne Banning, Ada Edwards Laughlin, Ruth Ann Montgomery and so many more. Another of our special women and a founding member of the Atlanta chapter was Lucy Smith, a shining example of how our members use their personal and professional life skills to serve their community through Assistance League.
