Liz Benham was instrumental in and a proponent of the founding of Cities for CEDAW, which is helping people take action in their cities to end discrimination against women. In 1998 San Francisco passed a CEDAW ordinance. A few years later Los Angeles did the same.
Besides being a very active member of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women, Benham was a midwife and

business woman, inventor, skydiver, glider pilot, world traveler and enjoyer of life.
