"This annual event ... is a perfect opportunity to highlight all the wonderful ways the women of Yolo County have contributed to and shaped our county. Without them, where would we be?"

Mike McGowan
Former Yolo County Supervisor,
1st District

“I enjoy the luncheons because they focus on positive things. This gives me a chance to see the movers and shakers from other parts of the county. The lunches remind us of the accomplishments Yolo County women have been making over time.”

John Ohlson
West Sacramento

Annual Celebration

We are excited to announce the national theme for 2024 Women's History Month is "Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion."

The theme recognizes women throughout the country who understand that for a positive future, we need to eliminate bias and discrimination entirely from our lives and institutions.  Women from every background have long experienced an uneven playing field that will never bring equality or justice. 

Women's History Month is traditionally celebrated annually in March.  The date/time and location for the 2024 celebration will be announced soon.

Gloria M. Lopez, 2023 YCWHM Keynote Speaker, with Supervisor Gary Sandy and Yolo County Board of Supervisors 

Gloria M. Lopez published AN AMERICAN PAELLA: Becoming American While Staying Spanish: A Century of Memories in Winters, California and produced a documentary of the same name in 2007 after interviewing over 80 people in Winters.  The stories are based on memories, experiences and tales that have been passed down for almost four generations. A few of the stories are from individuals who actually were born in Spain and immigrated to the United States; many of the stories are from individuals whose parents were the immigrants; and the remaining are from those whose grandparents and great-grandparents left their homes in search of a better life for their families.  They found that better life in Winters.
