Women’s History Month

For #WomensHistoryMonth I am honoring Ruth Cook. Ruth was born in Berlin, Germany and escaped Nazi control at a young age. She made her way to North Carolina with her husband. Ruth was the first woman elected to the North Carolina House of Representatives from Wake County in 1974.

She championed the causes of children, the underprivileged, the mentally ill and much more. Her legacy will live on through her good works.
