Atlantic County Branch Program
“Where Do We Go From Here?” For a More Just Society interest group panel discussion.
7 pm via Zoom
This webinar will center on systematic racism from the invention of the very concept of race to the codification of racism in today’s laws and government programs. Three of our members, who have studied the origins of systematic racism, will discuss these issues and respond to questions at the conclusion of the program.
- The Invention of Race. Carolyn will start prior to the development of the concept of race (Ancient Greece) and detail how economic interests led to using “race” as a justification for creating a source of unpaid labor. She will describe how both science and law maintained this label, especially in the United States.
- Redlining. Nadine will show how New Deal (and later) federal housing/mortgage programs, the GI Bill, and legal system failures worsened segregation, created ghettos and led to the wealth gap that exists today between Black and White people.
- Mass Incarceration. Ann-Maria will explain how the government’s two-part appeal to Southern voters: the Law and Order strategy and the War on Drugs, resulted in massive arrests with severe mandatory sentences and subsequent loss of rights that has impacted the Black community disproportionately and disenfranchised a large block of voters.
And here is some very helpful “homework” that will help you prepare: Racial Bias in America, How Did We Get Here and Why Are We Stuck? Part III, a one-hour video by Jeffrey Robinson. If you stay with him to the end I promise, you will never forget the last five minutes!

Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire
Sponsored by the Somerset Hills Branch of AAUW
The “Side-Splitting” Monologue That Helped Women Win the Ballot
6:30 for AAUW branch members, 7:00 for general public
Bernards Township Library – 32 S. Maple Ave., Basking Ridge NJ
PRESENTED BY THE NEW JERSEY HUMANITIES COUNCIL’S PUBLIC SCHOLARS PROGRAM
“Someone Must Wash the Dishes,” a wickedly funny anti-suffrage satire, will be performed in glorious costume by Miche’le LaRue, a member of Actors’ Equity and SAG. For decades, countless American women fought for the right to vote; but many others fought against it. Written by pro-suffragist Marie Jenney Howe in 1912, this satire presents some of the absurd arguments offered by those opposed to the Suffragist movement. Critics have called Miche’le LaRue’s performance “side-splitting.” Be sure to get this on your calendar and get there early for our dessert selection. This meeting will be open to the public.

The Work Smart workshop was created by the AAUW and is designed to help women negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion.
The Work Smart workshop was created by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) and is designed to help women negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion. The objectives of this workshop are to help women learn:
- How to identify and articulate your personal value
- How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other negotiation strategies, including how to get a raise or promotion
- How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits
- About the wage gap, including its long-term consequences as women age and the pay disparity increases
Who should attend?
The seminar is designed for women who are working or seeking employment and who want to become more effective and more confident in negotiating positions, pay, and benefits.
How is this workshop different from the free online Work Smart program you could complete at home?
At the workshop, you get the added benefit of peer input and feedback. You’ll hear from other working women about strategies they’ve used successfully and the challenges they face. Our facilitator will provide opportunities for discussion, coaching, and sharing.
Join the networking session following the workshop.
During our networking session, you can connect with other women in the working world to share opportunities, knowledge, and concerns.
Negotiation skills matter!
This course was designed in response to the continuing pay gap women experience regardless of their social and educational background. AAUW’s research on the gender pay gap shows that one year out of college, women are already paid significantly less than men. Women who work full time take home 80 cents for every dollar a full-time male worker is paid. And over a lifetime, those lost potential earnings add up. By negotiating fair and equitable salaries, women are better able to pay off loans, buy the things they want and need, and save for retirement. There’s more, too: Women who negotiate for a higher salary and better benefits package now increase their potential for future remuneration.
At the current rate, the national gender pay gap will not close until 2106. In 2018, AAUW announced a bold pledge: by 2022 we will train 10 million women to negotiate salary more effectively. We can no longer wait for policies and employer culture alone to determine when we reach parity. Instead, we are working to empower women nation-wide with skills to negotiate their position, salary, and benefits with confidence and become agents of change in their communities.
