AAUW Goes to China & Tibet

At the April 20th meeting, the Santa Maria Branch of AAUW (American Association of University Women) invites its members, the public, and friends to travel with Dianne Owens to China and Tibet to meet the women of these two fascinating countries.  Though the real life adventure in October of 2012 was far more exciting, Dianne is sure to entertain all with her PowerPoint show of the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City, and the Terra Cotta Warriors.  The real difference is that Dianne was traveling with a delegation from AAUW to research gender equity and to gain a firsthand understanding of the status of women in China.  The goal of Dianne’s group was to learn what role women play in the Chinese society; the challenges unique to the Chinese culture; and the shared challenges faced by women in China and the U.S.   The results of these inquiries are bound to fascinate and interest the attendees.

Guests attending the presentation will enjoy an afternoon at a pretend Chinese Tea Room with tea, fortune cookies and an array of other Oriental foods.    The proceeds from this tour of China and Tibet will be used to benefit AAUW’s Legal Advocacy Fund (LAF).

Members, friends and the public are invited to travel with Dianne from 2:00 to 4:00 PM at the Rancho Buena Vista Mobil Home Park Clubhouse on 2135 North Railroad Avenue in Santa Maria.

Reservations will be accepted until April 15th.  To make a reservation, please send a $15 check payable to AAUW, 4452 Berkshire Lane, Santa Maria, CA  93455-4157.
