Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society and has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987. Women’s History Month will take place from Tuesday, March 1-Thursday, March 31, 2022. The 2022 Women's History theme, “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope,” is both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history. The Women’s Resource Center has made a tradition of recognizing the accomplishments and contributions of La Plata County women during Women’s History Month. They are now accepting nominations for their prestigious “Extraordinary Woman Award”. To nominate someone you know, download the application at WRCdurango.org or call the Women’s Resource Center at 970.247.1242. The winner(s) will be honored at an award dinner on March 30th.
