Redefining Cinderella is the name of a free forum being sponsored by the Morris County Advisory Committee on Women on Friday, Oct. 14, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Student Community Center at the County College of Morris.

According to the advisory committee, the forum will challenge gender role expectations and stereotypes, and will help women find ways to empower themselves to choose their own happy ending and not wait for their “prince charming.”

The keynote speaker will be Linda Houser, PhD, professor at Widener University’s Center for Social Work Education and a policy practitioner in the area of Gender Disparity.

Other speakers will include Virginia Lyttle, author on the NJ Women’s Writers Project and past New Jersey State President of American Association of University Women; former Morris County Chamber of Commerce President Florence Block, Executive Director of the NJ Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council; Bernadette M. Mueller, Executive Vice President for Valley National Bank; and Butler Councilwoman
Judy Woop, owner of JW Consultants and a professor of Nursing Education at Caldwell College.

Lunch will be provided and seating is limited so advanced registration is required by Oct. 10.

The County College of Morris is located at 214 Center Grove Rd., in Randolph.
