Rebecca Seawright Officially Honors the Work of Phyllis Chesler - October 1, 2015


Rebecca A. Seawright is the first woman ever elected from my district of Manhattan to the New York State Assembly. I was very surprised and totally moved to hear her read aloud from the Citation she signed on my behalf as well as that of Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney's Honoring my work to be read into the Congressional Record. Rebecca also gave me New York State Senator Liz Krueger's Proclamation on my behalf and Assemblyman Dan Quart's Proclamation on my behalf in the New York State Assembly. And so now, my work has been officially registered and certified in the public realm by politicians…as I usually say when I am given an award: "What have I done wrong? My work usually gets me into trouble." Nah—I am incredibly pleased by this recognition.
