Women's History Month Events

March is Women's History Month! In March 2019 we explored historic places across L.A. County and shared inspirational stories about the women behind our region's buildings. Multiple events—including tours, a film screening, and more—shined a light on the fearless and talented women who excelled in their various disciplines and left a lasting impact on Los Angeles.
