"I have attended the luncheons for several years. My mother, though she did not have the opportunity to attend college, was an independent woman who was very interested in the history and culture of her family and her community. It is encouraging to see that spirit continue, not only in the women of my family, but also in our Yolo County community."

"I thoroughly enjoy the Women's History Month luncheons. I have reflected on my own parents' commitment to recognizing the importance of our history and how we must remember it as we change our course for the better. My dad marched in the women's suffrage parades, and my mom, when she was young, started a group of diverse women interested in their cultures and histories. I hope this event continues to flourish."

Annual Celebration

We are excited to announce our 2023 celebration honoring Women’s History Month at the Gibson House grounds on March 18, 2023 from 11am to 1pm.

The theme of this year’s celebration is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories,” recognizing women, past and present, who have been active in all forms of media and storytelling including print, radio, TV, stage, screen, blogs, podcasts, and more. The timely theme honors women in every community who have devoted their lives and talents to producing art, pursuing truth, and reflecting the human condition decade after decade.

Please join us to hear Winters resident Gloria Lopez, author of An American Paella, a compilation of Spanish immigrant stories, who will speak about her experience as an author, historian, and curator of local history.

As always, our Yolo County Library and Archives will participate, as will the Woodland Public Library and UC Davis Library Special Collections.

Please register for the event on Eventbrite

512 Gibson Rd, Woodland

Admission: $20

Small tasting portions of Paella, Tapas, and Tortillas Espanola will be served.

Part of the mission of Yolo County Women’s Month Committee is to raise funds for our local libraries and women’s organizations, so we gratefully accept any donations or sponsorships that you are willing to provide.   

We look forward to seeing everyone on March 18th!
