A day after their induction, several members of the 2017 class of the National Women's Hall of Fame will take the stage to talk about "When Living is Leading" at 10 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 17.
Medical research innovator Victoria Jackson, film industry trailblazer Sherry Lansing, model, actor and athlete Aimee Mullins, and Marine Corps pioneer Gen. Carol Mutter will take part in a panel discussion about women, advocacy and giving. They will point to where hope lies in creating new worlds, advocating for change and making it happen, as well as how to make women's leadership visible.
The four will be joined in the 2017 class by the Hon. Matilda Raffa Cuomo, first lady of New York from 1983 to 1995; animal sciences and farm welfare Dr. Temple Grandin; "A Raisin in the Sun" author Lorraine Hansberry; Vanity Fair editor and war journalist Clare Boothe Luce; geneticist and cancer researcher Dr. Janet D. Rowley; and chef and food activist Alice Waters.
The talk takes place in Wesleyan Chapel at the Women's Rights National Historical Park, 136 Fall St., Seneca Falls. It is free and open to the public.
