Judge Tower is final speaker in TCC’s “Women as Caretakers” lecture series on April 29

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – (April 23, 2004) – Tidewater Community College’s Women’s Center concludes its Spring Lecture Series, Women as Caretakers: Tradition, Challenges and Changes, with a talk by the Honorable Winship Tower, Juvenile and Domestic Relations Courts of Virginia Beach, on April 29, 12:30 p.m., at the Virginia Beach Campus, Cafeteria Annex.

TCC’s Women’s Center – celebrating its 10th anniversary – chose the topic of caregiving for its continuing impact on today’s society. Women have held the role of caregivers throughout history, often with great courage and at great cost. Some have used this role to reach a wider level of society, influencing institutional and governmental policies.

Judge Tower served on the Joint Subcommittee of the Virginia General Assembly to Study the Establishment of a Domestic Relations Division in the Judicial Circuits of the Commonwealth. She has been named a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and a “Woman of Distinction” by the YWCA of South Hampton Roads.

Women As Caregivers: Tradition, Challenges and Changes is free and reservations are not required. For more information, call the Women’s Center at 757-822-1538 or go to
