Who We Are and What We Do: LWV Whidbey serves the citizens of Whidbey
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, political organization (for both men and women) that encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government and influences public policy through education and advocacy. We do NOT support any candidate or political party. We provide objective and informative Voter Forums on North, Central, and South Whidbey covering candidates and issues. We have annual opportunities for members and guests to meet with our legislators, county commissioners, and the three mayors on the island. We study important public policy topics, come to consensus, and act as one voice in advocating for positions at the national, state, and local level. MORE

Truth and Consequences: #MeToo and the New Sexual Landscape Saturday, July 27, 2019 7:30 PM 9:30 PM Whidbey Island Center for the Arts
In October 2017, actress Alyssa Milano posted on Twitter, “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.” That came on the heels of stories by The New York Times and New Yorker about allegations of sexual assault by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Twenty-four hours after her tweet, Milano had 500,000 replies. They ignited the #MeToo movement in the United States — a phenomenon that would soon reverberate around the planet in surprising, sometimes profound, often disappointing ways. Sociologist Pepper Schwartz takes the stage and addresses the question: have things truly changed? If you are following the Epstein case, you do not want to miss this conversation.
