FULLERTON- Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva was proud to host the 2014 Women of Distinction event to honor exceptional women of the 65th District on March 29th with nearly 400 family members, friends and supporters. The ceremony, at Buena Park’s Walter D. Ehlers Community Recreation Center recognized the accomplishments of many outstanding women who make our community a better place to live and work.
“During Women’s History Month, I am reminded of the dedicated women who stood up for change and for the rights and opportunities that we enjoy today. From having the right to vote and serving in the United States Armed Forces, to becoming an elected official or company executive, we still face unique challenges with workplace discrimination and governmental representation. As we fight for a seat at the table and shape the future role of women in our society, we must remain vigilant on our path to equality,” said Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva.
