Fmr. First Lady Bush To Get Alice Award

First Lady Michelle Obama is clearly today’s It Girl, so what better timing than this morning to announce that former first lady Laura Bush is scheduled to receive the Alice Award?

Bush will be honored by the Sewall-Belmont House & Museum on Capitol Hill at its Alice Award luncheon on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 at noon.  Each year, explains a release, “the Alice Award honors women who have broken barriers and set new precedents for women. Through her work on education, health care and human rights, Mrs. Bush has influenced women’s lives in the United States and around the world. Like Alice Paul, she believes that a world that is good for women is good for everyone.”

The canned but pleasant quote: “We are thrilled to honor such a worthy recipient with this year’s Alice Award. The Sewall-Belmont House & Museum is proud to celebrate Mrs. Bush’s ongoing commitment to improving women’s lives at home and abroad. We are excited to celebrate her achievements and honor her with our Alice Award,” said Lucy Calautti and Peggy Cifrino, 2012 Alice Award Co-Chairs.
