She Is Me Frieda
Anyone who met Frieda was swept up by her feisty spirit and passion to make democracy work for everyone. Born when women were just earning the right to vote, she was a lifelong advocate for both voter rights and women’s causes. A Navy veteran (she joined the WAVES in WWII), she was a leader in the Princeton NJ League for 55 years, serving two terms as president. Frieda died recently but her voice remains in all of us at the League.
