This annual exhibit features the work of The Michiana Women's Leaders Project, which is filling a void by creating an oral history of women in our community. For this reason, the exhibit highlights both women whose leadership is widely recognized and those who have led quietly behind the scenes, perhaps not known by the community at large.

The League of Women Voters is pleased to welcome our own Dr. Elizabeth Bennion as the speaker for our upcoming Lunch with the League event on Friday, May 11, 2018 at the Chocolate Café in downtown South Bend from 12:00 + 1:00 PM. Dr. Bennion is a professor of political science at Indiana University South Bend and Director of Voter Services and Education for the League of Women Voters of the South Bend Area.
Dr. Bennion will reflect on her own childhood as she considers what led her to a life of community service and engagement. Combining her knowledge as a professor, researcher, and civic educator with her experiences as a daughter, mother, and civic group leader, Bennion will discuss how parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles can create joyful and meaningful childhood experiences that build long-term civic identity and political engagement.
Dr. Bennion teaches American politics, with an emphasis on political behavior. She is the founding director of IUSB's American Democracy Project and host of WNIT's live weekly television program Politically Speaking. In these capacities she moderates political discussions, public issue forums, and candidate debates for local, state, and national candidates. Her teaching, research, and service all promote civic education and engagement.
This event is free and open to the public. Attendees are welcome to arrive early to purchase lunch before the talk.
