The Ladies Room Offers Programming and Entertainment at the TDP Convention

by: Katherine Haenschen

Thu Jun 26, 2014 at 04:00 PM CDT

This is a big year for women in Texas, and with the impending nomination of our first all-female Governor-Lieutentant Governor ticket, it's no surprise to see the ladies playing a big role in our state convention.

To supplement the offerings at the 2014 TDP convention, the North Dallas chapter of the Texas Democratic Women is organizing "The Ladies Room" to provide women-centric programming and entertainment.

While usually the state party convention has a hospitality suite for women, this year the NDTDW has worked hard to provide a broad array of all-star panels and events.

See the full schedule below the jump.

The Ladies Room is located at the bottom of the escalators, in Lower Lobby "C."  It will be open throughout the convention for coffee and conversation.
