In anticipation of the opera, “Mrs. President” composer Victoria Bond joined Alaskan trailblazers Arliss Sturgulewski, Senator Bettye Davis, Jane Angvik, Georgiana Lincoln and Cynthia Toohey for a panel discussion moderated by APRN’s Lori Townsend on “Women in America: Changing Roles, Challenging Times, Defining the Future.”
