The Women and Leadership Archives (WLA) collects, preserves, and makes available permanently valuable records of women and women's organizations, which document women's lives, roles, and contributions.
On Saturday April 23, the organization Mary's Pence, held a reception at Piper Hall for their board meeting, staff, and supporters. Mary's Pence is an organization that directs funds to programs that serve women in need of education, shelter, legal advice, and psychological and spiritual development.
