Women’s League

The seniors on the Women’s League board are cut short from the experience to help other women in the spring of 2020. 

Women’s League, a club at El Modena High School that promotes women’s issues was originally named Girl’s League but their purpose did not. This school year Women’s League managed to put together the Walk for the Cure in October of 2019 and Winter Formal in February 2020. The board had more events planned like a prom dress runway show, where girls who can’t afford prom dresses take theirs, and a clothing drive to donate to charities. Unfortunately circumstances changed and now these events will be on hold for next year. 

This school’s year board were seniors Jasmine Garcia as president, Dulce Jurado as vice president, Lourdes Pantaleon as treasure, Alejandra Bolanos as secretary, and Giselle Espinoza as historian. After years of hard work they move onto their next chapter in their lives taking their inner fight to raise women’s struggles. President Jasmine Garcia shares “I learned a lot from this club to be a leader and to be organized and hope that I can continue to raise women awareness by having a cancer walk at my college.” This applies to the rest of the girls on the board and in the club who believe in “women should help women”. 

As a board member of this club I felt honored to learn about these issues. Walking for the Cure was definitely my favorite experience from this club because the funds raised went to help women breast cancer. It is a feeling that brings a smile to my face knowing other women will receive treatment despite their financial circumstances. Even if our year was cut short this is an awareness I will always fight for my whole life. 

Mrs. Chertock and Mrs. Lingle, Women’s League co-advisors, were a huge impact to the management of the club. Their advice and dedication were astounding. The club members and the board learned from both advisors and as the board members carry this onto their senior year they will accomplish beyond their goals to help women.
