Assemblywoman Amy Paulin Honors the Extraordinary Women of Bronxville

Bronxville – New York State Assemblywoman Amy Paulin (D-88) hosted the Bronxville Women of Distinction Awards on March 22, honoring 10 extraordinary women for their efforts to improve the community.

The ceremony, which was held at the Bronxville Women’s Club, was part of a Women’s History Month celebration. Those honored were chosen for a variety of endeavors including but not limited to education, humanitarian work, military service, community/civic affairs, healthcare, government, volunteerism and business.

Christina J. Eldridge , Vicki Ford, Dr. Mary Giuffra, Jeanne Harrigan , Marilyn Wood Hill, Eloise Morgan, Irena Choi Stern , Mary Turino and Mary E. Westmoreland were honored as was Bronxville Mayor Mary Marvin, who co-hosted the event.

“Susan B. Anthony wrote in a letter to [social activist and early women’s rights leader] Elizabeth Cady Stanton in 1902 that the duo were ‘compelled to leave the finish of the battle [for women’s rights] to another generation of women. There is an army of them where we were but a handful’.

“Bronxville has an army of women who are changing history every day and today we honored 10 of them,” Paulin said.

This marks the second consecutive year in which Paulin has honored the women in her district. The Pelham Women of Distinction Awards were presented last spring.
