Piazza at Burnett Ave. S./ Spirit of Washington Event Center. Today, Saturday 12 noon til 5 pm.

This event is hosted by the Renton Business and Professional Women's Organization (www.rentonbpw.org), in honor of equity for women in the workplace and equal pay. BPW is one of the oldest and largest national women's organizations . Founded in 1919, the BPW was one of the first to endorse the Equal Rights Amendment (1923). Even today, can you believe this!, the Equal Rights Amendment is still trying to be ratified and become our 28th Amendment. We've come so far and yet, we have still further we must go.
