Farenthold website wins major award
The Rapoport Center has won an Exceptional Merit in Media Award from the National Women’s Political Caucus for its online exhibition Frances Tarlton “Sissy” Farenthold: A Noble Citizen.
It is with great sadness that we note the passing of Audre Rapoport on April 4th, 2016, at the age of 92. Audre has been and will continue to be an inspiration for much of our work. It is hard for us to imagine a world without Audre and B, whose passionate commitment to justice have had a profound impact on so many people in this world.
A few years ago we put together a small online exhibition on B and Audre, which includes a page dedicated to Audre. We also continue to award the annual Audre Rapoport Prize for Scholarship on Gender and Human Rights, which honors Audre's dedication to the advancement of women in the US and internationally, particularly on issues of reproductive health.
We extend our sympathy to Audre’s family during this time. We will always remember her, and will do our utmost to do justice to her memory.
