The Women’s Legacy Project of Snohomish County
The Women's Legacy Project of Snohomish County, Washington, seeks to honor our foremothers by recording and sharing their personal histories, their ability to adapt to the forces of change and their constant vigilance as stewards of the diverse cultures of our society.
This website is a collection of stories about women's lives. The women included here are from many cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds. They worked in business, industry, government, schools, medicine and the military. Their accomplishments include creation of schools, hospitals, libraries, and churches. They were often leaders of community organizations that provided social "safety nets ",but they could also be recipients of community services. And as always, they were central to the invaluable creation of homes and the nurturing of families.
