The Women’s History Institute is an initiative designed to illuminate the significant contributions made by women in our region.

The Institute fosters a deeper understanding of the women who shaped the culture and chronicle of the area, including the diverse women who lived and worked on our sites, and offers a contemporary audience the resources necessary to take inspiration from their history. View our short film below to learn more about The Women’s History Institute from the women who helped found it and those who continue its mission today.
