In honor of Women's History Month the City of Los Angeles and the Mayor's Gender Equity Team, in partnership with Mount Saint Mary's University (MSMU) are excited to host an event aimed at increasing the number of buildings, streets, landmarks, and facilities named after women. The event is bringing people together to help collect information on the influential women of Los Angeles. The information gathered will be used to create the City's first ever digital Women's Rights Historic Context as well as produce a list of influential Angelenas to have accessible when needing to name a landmark. The Historic Context will tell the narrative and provide a timeline of the milestones involved in the women's rights movement of Los Angeles. If she can't see it, she can't be it!
Join us,, from at MSMU Doheny Campus (10 Chester Pl, LA). to help collect information on the influential women of Los Angeles. Food will be provided.
You can register here.
