The Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford will kick off their 2014 Women's Campaign at VOICES with keynote speech from Dee Dee Myers, author of the bestselling book, Why Women Should Rule the World. Myers made history as the first female White House Press Secretary, working for the Clinton Administration.

West Hartford, CT, October 04, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Myers appearance at VOICES couldn’t be more timely: Myers has been outspoken on the subject of healthcare, writing this winter in her huffingtonpost.com blog: “I consider healthcare a basic human right -- and all of us, regardless of our race, gender, income, religion, sexual orientation, or where we live, should have access to it.” Myers is also a political analyst who speaks often about how women possess the kind of critical problem-solving skills that are urgently needed to break down barriers, build understanding, and create the best conditions for peace.
