Entry Title Date
Reintroducing The National Women’S Rights History Project Act March 26, 2015
Louise Slaughter, D-NY
"It is fitting that we reintroduce this bill during March, which is Women’s History Month. I am especially proud that it was in Rochester, New York where Susan B. Anthony fought so hard for the rights that women throughout this country rely on today. Among her many efforts, Susan B. Anthony established the Equal Rights Association to refute ideas that women were inferior to men and to fight for women’s right to vote. She also fought to tear down the walls holding women back from higher education."
Recognizing Michael Graziano, Filmmaker, And The Documentary Film Resistance March 24, 2015
Louise Slaughter, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Michael Graziano and his extraordinarily talented team at Uji Films who have created a fantastic documentary called Resistance. Michael recently joined me along with a panel of experts on antibiotic resistance for a screening of Resistance in my district of Rochester, New York, to an amazing response. The film uses microscopic footage, harrowing personal stories and expert insight to delve into the history of antibiotic resistance, starting with the mass production of antibiotics 70 years ago and tracking the rise of superbugs into the 21st Century."

Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY

Dr. Hooker had a long, remarkable career as a professor in New York. After retiring at the age of 87, she continues to inspire and support women joining the military, and believes our country prospers because of its diversity."
Department Of Homeland Security Funding January 29, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Karen was brought here at the age of 2 from Mexico. She grew up in Chicago. She was an outstanding student, and she always had an interest in public service. In May of 2012 she graduated from the University of Rochester in New York with a major in political science. She was not only the first person in her family to graduate from a 4-year college—because Karen Villagomez is undocumented, she didn’t receive one penny of government assistance. She made it through college on her own without any help because as an undocumented young woman that was the only chance she had."
