UCLA Health spotlights FSPH faculty in "100 in 100" honors for Women's Equality Day

UCLA Health saluted 100 trailblazing women with the system for Women's Equality Day, including seven current faculty members at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health

Wednesday, August 26, 2020

Women’s Equality Day was celebrated August 26, 2020, honoring the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, establishing women’s right to vote.

To mark the date, UCLA Health honored 100 women of achievement at UCLA Health, including faculty members with dual appointments at UCLA Health and the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health (FSPH).

In a statement, UCLA Health said: "We also want to acknowledge that despite the passage of the 19th Amendment granting the rights of all people to vote, discriminatory practices did not protect that right for Black Americans and other people of color. It wasn’t until nearly a half-century later, with the signing into law of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, that everyone was able to exercise their right to vote. The work ahead of us remains significant. But as the past has taught us, when we knock down walls, we open doors. We know there are thousands of women at UCLA Health who are making an impact daily. Honoring the following trailblazers is just the beginning of the stories we will share."

The seven FSPH faculty members - all with dual appointments - who were honored include:
