Apr 25, 2008

Jennifer Safford Murphy, wife of Congressman Patrick Murphy, will speak at Delaware Valley College during the second biannual Diversity Open Forum at 4:30, Tuesday, April 29 in the Smart Classroom in Mandell Hall.
Titled, “Gendered Politics: Women Who Stand By Their Men or by Themselves,” the event is free and open to the public and will focus on issues relevant to gender and politics, in particular the role of spouses of political figures.

The event is sponsored by the college’s Liberal Arts Department in an effort to enhance both DelVal students’ and the community’s awareness of social and cultural diversity, to encourage students to participate in the discussion of current world events and to encourage students’ active involvement in the ongoing formation of a multicultural global community.

Safford Murphy is a lawyer with Fox Rothschild, LLP, in Philadelphia. She specializes in estate planning and taxes. She earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware and her master’s and law degrees from Temple University. She is an executive committee member of the Temple Law Alumni Association and serves on the Board of Directors of the Bucks County Women’s Fund. She is also a member of the Congressional Spouse’s Club.
