The Santa Barbara Chapter of the Association for Women in Communications (AWC-SB) will present a provocative panel discussion.

Is the sex barrier to political leadership more serious an obstacle than the race barrier? We will discuss the importance of how the media shapes perceptions of women, and how we can impact this. As women who have both influenced and been affected by this process, we are honored to present our two distinguished speakers, Gayle Binion and Susan Rose.

Admission: $20 Members; $30 Guests; $5 students. Media please check in at or prior to event with Nancy Black, . Networking with light refreshments will occur for the first half hour.

Prior to the panel, the AWC-SB will showcase The California Woman's Festival (March 7-9, 2008, at SBCC and Earl Warren Showgrounds). Director Patty De Dominic will briefly talk about the Festival's unique vision and purpose, the program, and celebrity speakers. De Dominic is the former CEO of PDQ Careers and CEO of Executive Search as well as former National President of National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and the LA Chamber of Commerce.

There will be time for questions from the audience after the presentation. For more information, contact For media inquiries, contact Nancy Black (569-1559, or
