2020 marks the centennial of the passage of the 19th ammendment, giving women

the right to vote.  Do you know the significance of  the yellow rose? Women (and men) who supported allowing women to vote indicated their support by wearing a yellow rose. Those that disagreed wore red roses.

"                                       One Shoe Can Change Your Life"- Cinderella.... so can a book!  

The Red Shoe Book Club is a project of NFRW, to inspire RWF women to share books or start a book club within your club. 

 There is a list of recommended literature at NFRW.org/melp, which is divided by subject and also has childrens books. You can also share books of personal interest. This  is a great way to grow in sisterhood, sharing books and ideas over coffee, tea or wine!!
