Jane Caputi, Guest Presenter, Florida Atlantic University Professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. She is the author of The Age of Sex Crime; Gossips, Gorgons and Crones and Goddesses and Monsters: Women, Myth, Power and Popular Culture.
Board member Jayne Chapman is devoted to her part-time work as a Community Outreach Director for Congressman Ted Deutch, to service as a local precinct leader, and to ILIR. She created the Government in Action Spotlight series for ILIR, inviting Palm Beach County elected officials to explain their work and that of their organizations to our members. Some speakers Jayne has brought to ILIR include State’s Attorney Dave Aronberg, School Board member Karen Brill, State Representative Teri Mitze, and Property Appraiser Dorothy Jacks. Jayne grew up on Long Island, then lived and worked in businesses in Connecticut and in Massachusetts for many years. She and her late husband Barry moved to Boca Raton in 1991, where they created two businesses of their own, including a large landscaping company. Jayne also served as comptroller for a local mortgage company. After semi-retiring, Jayne found her true calling in public service and in her commitment to lifelong learning.
