Based in CNN’s Washington, D.C. bureau, Crowley is the network’s chief political correspondent and anchor of the network’s “State of the Union” Sunday program. You may remember Candy’s assertive performance as moderator of the Obama vs. Romney debate last fall. She was the first woman to moderate a presidential debate since 1992. Candy will surely enthrall us with gripping stories of the many congressional and presidential races she has covered for over two decades. The Los Angeles Times has characterized her reporting as “sophisticated political observation, graceful writing, and determined fairness” and her style as “no-nonsense” and “straight shooter.” Among many other honors, Crowley earned a prestigious Gracie Allen Award in 2009 for coverage of Hillary Clinton’s bid for the White House. She also was part of the network’s Emmy award-winning 2006 mid-term election coverage.

The National Speaker Forum has become a time-honored tradition in Cincinnati.
Each spring, The Woman’s City Club brings a nationally known speaker to address our community. In its early history, WCC invited outstanding nationals leaders to speak in Cincinnati. In 1916, Woodrow Wilson came to address our city. He was followed by education John Dewey and social worker Jane Addams in 1918, and in 1923, by Carrie Chapman Cat, women’s rights activist.
The National Speakers’ Forum was revived in 1994, when WCC invited Lani Guineer to speak. This forum has now become a nationally recognized event. It has given the Cincinnati community the opportunity to enjoy a number of engaging and renowned public speakers including Susan Stamburg, Wilma Mankiller, Joycelyn Elders, Molly Ivins, Pat Schroeder, Terry Gross, Michel Martin, Charlayne Hunter-Gault, Anna Deavere Smith, Gail Collins, Katty Kay, Naomi Tutu, Kerry Kennedy, and Robin Wright. This year we are delighted to announce that our honored speaker for 2014 will be Candy Crowley, CNN’s award-winning senior political correspondent and actor of the network’s “State of the Union” Sunday program.
