Charlie Sykes: Sykes Writes

  • Print
Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch announced today on Midday with Charlie Sykes the appointment of 17 accomplished conservative women to the selection committee charged with choosing the winners of the first-ever Margaret Thatcher Award and accompanying Right Women Awards.
Kleefisch is serving as chair of the selection committee. The awards will be handed out at the first annual Right Women Dinner on October 18, 2013.
"The Right Women Awards is important because it identifies and salutes female leaders and role models in Wisconsin whose contributions to the state have impacted or altered history. The Right Women Awards will be a beacon for Wisconsin conservatives: something for conservative women to aspire to, a celebration of achievement and a call to action for further progress," said Kleefisch.
"Because unique barriers have been identified as inhibiting the political candidacies of women in this male-dominated field, it is exciting and important to point to those risk-takers and problem-solvers who have chosen to take up the challenge and reward of public servant-hood. The women selected to choose the winners of the Right Women Awards will recognize hard-won victories and raise up those who will fight for Wisconsin."
