Women, Words and Wisdom focus of 3rd annual speaker series

The 2013 Speaker Series of the Women’s Center of Jacksonville kicks off Tuesday, Mar. 5 at 5:30 p.m. with a lecture by Anne M. Butler, Ph.D. at Theatre Jacksonville in San Marco. Women, Words and Wisdom is this year’s theme for the events which benefit the Women’s Center’s Expanded Horizons Adult Literacy Program for Women. March is also Women’s History Month and Dr. Butler’s discussion on prostitutes and nuns in the American West reveals the stark and harsh environment that women experienced during the period of 1850-1920.
On Tuesday, Apr. 2, Dr. Jennifer Wesely will focus on the role that violence lays in the homelessness of women and the sexualization of girls and women in our society. The series conclusion on May 7 features Madeline Scales-Taylor, who will share how retirement can impact women as we transform the “me” generation into the “we” generation. Tickets are $90 for the series, or $35 for a single lecture. Go to www.womenscenterofjax.org or call (904) 722-3000 to order.
