The League of Women Voters of Florence celebrated women's suffrage on Women's Equality Day by honoring six female judges currently serving in the Florence County judicial system.
"We just want to make people more aware of judicial diversity,"said Frances Elmore, Co-president. Kimberly Cox, agrees. When she became magistrate 22 years ago, Cox was the lone woman among ten men. "It's a good thing to see balance-- period, be it gender, race, religion," she said.
Judges in attendance were presented with LWV "Evolution of Authority" refrigerator magnets by Co-president Hannah Reig.
The cookie and punch reception was held at the Florence County Public Library and open to the public.
