DENTON — Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, co-founder and chair of Women’s Campaign International and a senior lecturer at The Fels Institute of Government at the University of Pennsylvania, will visit Texas Woman’s University April 8 to 11 as a Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow.

During her visit to TWU, Ms. Margolies-Mezvinsky also will give presentations to classes, participate in seminars and visit with individual students and faculty members.

In 1992, Ms. Margolies-Mezvinsky became the first woman elected to the U.S. Congress from Pennsylvania, representing the state’s 13th district in the 103rd Congress. She served as chair of the National Women’s Business Council and led the United States’ delegation to the United Nations’ Fourth World Conference on Women in 1995.
