KATE KENNEDY | May 31, 2020 @ 1pm
On May 31, 2020 at 1:00 pm, the United Irish Societies will be live streaming on their Facebook page a tribute to Kate Kennedy, Champion of Women’s Rights and Workers’ Rights. Irish immigrant and San Francisco pioneer, Kate Kennedy won equal pay for equal work in 1874 and protection from arbitrary dismissal in 1899 for California educators. She was also the first women to run for state office in California. 2020 is the 100th anniversary of the implementation of the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote in the USA so it is especially fitting that we honor Kate Kennedy this year.
