The Center for Women and Democracy (CWD) held its annual gala at the Women’s University Club on Nov. 16 to celebrate the women who ran in the recent election and won.
Among the honorees were Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, State Sen. Manka Dhingra, and King County Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht. More than 100 people attended.
According to the CWD, a record-breaking number of women ran in Washington state and in King County alone, 40 percent were women.
The proceeds of this fundraiser supports the work of the CWD, a community of women leaders united to transform society by building and leveraging the power of women’s leadership locally and globally.
