Long Beach AAUW announces March program celebrating Women’s History Month

March is Women’s History Month! The American Association of University Women (AAUW) Long Beach’s Saturday, March 4th program will feature Dr. Judy Wu, a professor at UC Irvine, and author speaking about her book: em>Fierce and Fearless — Patsy Takemoto Mink: First Woman of Color in Congress.
