Long-time Sonoma County NOW Member Mary West Honored by Commission on Status of Women

Long-time NOW member and past chapter president Mary West (1920 - 2013) was honored by the Sonoma County Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in 2012, as the Sonoma County woman who had contributed most to women. Mary was nominated by both Sonoma County NOW and the Women's Political Caucus of Sonoma County.

Our thanks to the CSW for honoring Mary. In addition to inviting speakers, preparing our agendas, answering the NOW phone, facilitating our meetings, and many other tasks, Mary was also our Newsletter Editor, informing us of crucial (and stunning) reproductive rights issues from throughout the U.S. in each newsletter.  Most of us would not have been aware of the array of serious incursions on a woman's right to choose outside of California, and how much we must not be complacent about choice nor take for granted the reproductive rights women and girls have in California. Much gratitude to Mary for her dedication to keeping us informed about the status of choice across the country.
