My mother, Catherine O’Brien was one of the Lipstick Brigade and went to Washinton in 1938. She turns 100 tomorrow!
Wow– please wish her a Happy Birthday for me!! I’m still interviewing women about their experiences if she’s interested in sharing them. I’d love to talk to her. Thanks for finding the site!
