  • Crocco Featured Speaker At New Jersey Women's Leadership Conference

    Some 1,500 women from across the State of New Jersey attended a two-day conference on women's leadership in Atlantic City in October. The Governor's Conference on Economic Empowerment for Women offered 80 workshops on a wide variety of topics. Most of the speakers at the conference were looking ahead to the future or contemporary issues. Gov. Christine Todd Whitman said that the growing New Jersey economy has translated into increased opportunities for women. Other speakers talked about "winning the power game" and dealing with sexual harassment. But Margaret Crocco, Associate Professor of Social Studies and Education, had a different assignment: to explain the importance of Seneca Falls and the fight for women's rights.
