Women’s Influence in 2012


Susan Scanlan was elected chair of the National Council of Women’s Organizations in 2005.  The Council is a nonpartisan coalition of over 240 progressive women’s groups representing 12 million American women—everything from the Girls, Inc. to the Older Women’s League.

She comes from a long line of politically active women. Her grandmother chained herself to a tree in the cherry orchard that was going to removed in Washington D.C. Susan celebrates the cherry blossoms in a very personal way. Her grandmother helped same them.

Susan gets to see the influence of women and the climate about women in the political arena in ways most of us do not.

Susan even played a part in making March Women’s History Month.
