About The Event

On October 9th, we will honor Gertrude Weil, the founder and first president of the North Carolina League of Women Voters (LWVNC). We will also celebrate the 100th anniversary of the NC League and 19th Amendment, which granted most women the right to vote. Gertrude Weil has many connections to Greensboro and Temple Emanuel. She declared the founding of the League in Greensboro at the Old Guilford County Courthouse on October 7, 1920. Gertrude's sister, Janet, was the late Arthur Bluethenthal's mother, Betsy and Tony Bluethenthal's aunt, and a close friend of Mrs. Julius Cone (Laura) who was the first treasurer of the league. David and Emily Weil, nephew of Gertrude Weil, will talk about her personality. Leonard Rogoff, the author of her biography Gertrude Weil: Jewish Progressiveness in the New South, will tell us about their struggle for women's justice.
