IN MEMORIAM
LOUISE SPIEGEL (1924 - 2022)

Woman's City Club has lost its guardian angel, its beloved Louise Spiegel who passed away July 4. She prodded us, as she did herself, to challenge the status quo, take on city hall, and strive to empower the less fortunate, especially young Black youth and men, the Appalachian community, and women from all backgrounds -- all of which she backed with a generous donation to our Thriving Cincinnati project.

A champion of increasing citizen engagement, she brought WCC and the community along with her compassionate vision. She was WCC's premier Feisty woman.

If you would like to make a donation in Louise’s honor, please use the link below.

WCC’S RESPONSE TO THE REVERSAL
OF ROE V. WADE

WCC cannot stay silent about the U.S. Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade. Women’s freedom to make decisions about their own bodies is now being eliminated in many states, whose legislatures now have the legal authority to regulate or ban the procedure at any point in a pregnancy and for any reason.

These harmful decisions at the national and state levels are an issue of social justice, and may be the beginning of an assault on the constitutional guarantee to equal protection of the laws and the right to due process that could also threaten the rights of BIPOC (Black, indigenous, and people of color), LGBTQIA+, and other historically marginalized communities.
