UC Law dean to headline “Dangerous Dames” event
Dean Verna Williams, Nippert Professor of Law, will be the keynote speaker at Dangerous Dames of Dayton 2022, the signature event of the League of Women Voters of the Greater Dayton area.
Dean Williams will discuss voting and its importance for everyone. The event will be held at 5:30 pm, Tues., March 8, 2022 at the NCR Country Club in Kettering, OH Tickets are $100 and can be purchased online at lwvdayton.org/dangerous-dames-2022.
This year’s event will celebrate the accomplishments of local women who have made impactful contribution. Inductees include Carol Graff, community volunteer; Reverend Dawn Martin, associate minister at Omega Baptist Church and founder of The Risen Empowerment Resource Center, Inc., Diva by Design Ministries and G.E.M.S, Girls Empowered and Mentored to Success; and, Reverend Vanessa Ward, president, the Omega Community Development Corporation.
The term “dangerous dames” was devised in honor of the Dayton (OH) suffragists who marched and protested through Dayton streets and were deemed “dangerous to polite society.” These women went on to become the founders of Dayton’s League of Women Voters in 1920. For over one hundred years, the Dayton League has been at the forefront of voters’ rights and human rights, and is a strong proponent of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
