30 Years of Feminism:  From Marching in the Streets to a Seat at the Table

Keynote Speaker
Candidate for California Lieutenant Governor 

More details on the celebration to follow soon

It all started with a bang on January 27, 1988, with our first event, a reception for feminist icon and National Organization for Women co-founder, Betty Friedan, at Zelo's restaurant on State Street.   As the  News-Press  reported, "They each called people they thought might be interested, those people called other people, and Santa Barbara may never be the same again."

Throughout our history, SBWPC has helped scores of feminist candidates take a seat at the table.  This core mission continues today.  We must  keep our eyes on the prize to secure a seat at the table if we want to protect the gains we have made and move our feminist agenda forward.  

SBWPC is here to help you get ready to take YOUR seat at the table. Check out the Candidate Resources page on our website.   We also offer campaign skills workshops, consultation sessions, and scholarships through A Seat at the Table: A Fund for a Feminist Future (FFF)  for our feminist women members who want to make real and profound change in our community, the State of California and our nation.  

Together we are making a difference!
