SWC February 2023 Update

Here in Spain, the Women’s Caucus hosted a ‘Let’s Talk’ Zoom session a few weeks ago. We had a very interesting discussion that included our reactions to the midterm elections, the lack of accountability in US politics these days, and how we attempt to explain the Spanish lifestyle to our family and friends back in the States. 

At the end of January, I attended the DA Spain leadership retreat in Madrid. It was an informative and energizing event, as well as a great way to get to know other DA members. Many thanks to the organizers. 

February is Black History Month and in honor of this month I plan to read Master Slave Husband Wife: An Epic Journey From Slavery to Freedom’, by Ilyon Woo. It’s the story of a light skinned black woman who dressed as a man and together with her husband, who acted as her ‘slave,’ escaped to the north. While I can’t personally vouch for it–I still need to read it!–the book has gotten rave reviews, including this one on Goodreads.

March is Women’s History Month and the 8th of March is International Women's Day. How would you like to celebrate? What issues are important to you? What can we as a Caucus do to celebrate? 

I’d love to hear from you! Write to me at [email protected].


All the best, Doris
