Judith Evered, Dorothy Holland, and Deborah Winant Receive National Awards from Women’s International League of Peace and Freedom



On September 18, at the Public Library’s Faulkner Gallery, three longtime members of the Women’s International League of Peace and Freedom (WILPF) were honored for their many years of service and dedication to the organization, which began in 1915 in Amsterdam before spreading across the world. Mayor Helene Schneider presented awards from WILPF’s national office to (from right) Judith Evered, 89 years old; Dorothy Holland, 96; and Deborah Winant, 97. Then all in attendance enjoyed performances from Baile de California, which paid tribute to the work and choreography of Isadora Duncan.
