Do the 48 Women not like kids?
The 48 Women were selected for honor during the Arizona Centennial celebration. Formation of the group was an Arizona Centennial Commission Legacy Project. Their website (http://www.48women.org/) shows that they are affiliated with the Arizona Historical Society. They are having a “special gathering” at the AHS Facilities in Tempe on Saturday, May 17, from 10:00 to 12:30. The invitation reads as follows:
As described in a recent Phoenix Magazine article, the project would finalize the destruction of the historic Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum. Fifty thousand children visited the museum each year. The museums K-12 science education programs inspired many children to pursue successful careers in science and engineering.
