Random Lengths News - Last Women's Conference?

Random Lengths News story by me from 2010 online - Women's Conference, Shriver and Minervas 11/10:

2010 is the last time California saw a women's conference. Since this story ran, Gov. Jerry Brown has definitely transformed the event: He has not held a Women's Conference. This event outlasted three Republican governors--and one Democratic one--but our current Democratic governor shows no interest in continuing it.

Womens Conference Will Remember Shriver and Minervas

Note: the third paragraph of this story was added by Random Lengths editorial staff.
