You’re Invited to the Woman’s Hour

Thursday, August 26

4:30 PM

The Fox Valley 19th Amendment Centennial Coalition invites us to attend The Woman’s Hour on Women’s Equality Day, August 26. The event starts at 4:30 PM at Perry Hall on the University of Wisconsin-Fox Cities Campus and features award-winning author, journalist and speaker Elaine Weiss.

In her book, The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote, Weiss provides a gripping account of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV is currently developing The Woman’s Hour for television, with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton serving as executive producer.

A wine and hors d’oeuvre reception will precede the program, which starts at 5:45 PM. Elaine Weiss will sign copies of her book following the program.

Tickets are $5 and are required in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door. Registration deadline is August 15, 2021. Register now.

This event is presented by the Fox Valley 19th Amendment Centennial Coalition.

Sponsor Spotlight: The Cozzy Corner

The Cozzy Corner 2021 Yearbook AdInterview with Phillip Bennett: Co-owner of The Cozzy Corner

ESTHER wishes to recognize Phillip Bennett and his wife, Heidi, proprietors of The Cozzy Corner, a soul food restaurant in downtown Appleton. 

Phillip and Heidi purchased The Cozzy Corner about a year ago from their friend Tasha. It is one of many businesses that they own and manage. They also own a clothing store in the Fox River Mall, a barber shop and multiple properties in Appleton.

Phillip has a long and accomplished history in the Fox Valley. After his early release from prison in 2008, he moved to Appleton, obtained a machining degree from Fox Valley Technical College and began work at Neenah Foundry. During his ten years of employment there,  Phillip was promoted to supervisor, making him the first Black man hired as a supervisor at the foundry.
