HAWLEY PRAISES WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH, TOUTS BLOODLINE OF INFLUENTIAL WOMEN

            Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) today hailed March as Women’s History Month and Tuesday as International Women’s Day in the U.S., and reminded his colleagues and constituents to take some time to applaud the tremendous accomplishments and progress made by women in our state’s history. Hawley also touted the impressive heritage of women in his family dating back over 100 years.

            “First I would like to pay my deepest respects to our state and country’s brave women who played a tremendous role in shaping history and society despite repeated obstacles,” Hawley said. “We owe them our deepest gratitude and this month is dedicated to praising their impressive lives. My great aunt, Ella Hawley Crossett, played an influential role in the women’s suffrage movement and worked closely with Susan B. Anthony. Also, my grandmother, Emma Charlotte Hawley, was one of the first women elected to a school board in New York State, so this month has special meaning for me.”
