October 18, 2017 BPW Meeting Program
Fighting for Civil Rights
Join us on Wednesday, Oct. 18 to hear the story of the trailblazing gay rights pioneer Rosemary Metrailer, a Nevada County resident and member/past president of our club. She famously sued Reverend Jerry Falwell . . . and won . . . and used the funds as seed money to establish what is now the Sacramento LGBT Center.
Rosemary’s work has been made into a documentary film, “Legends of Courage: The Rosemary Metrailer Story” which has been shown in the Sacramento region and which we hope to screen here in Nevada County in 2018. To see a trailer about the documentary (1 min 40 sec), to visit click here.
Her talk will cover her career and her activism for civil rights, including both the Falwell case and and a class action sex discrimination suit against McClellan Air Force Base on behalf of women employees (which she also won).
