Santa Monica Women’s History Month Kicks Off With Reception Tuesday:

The Santa Monica Commission on the Status of Women (COSW) invites everyone in the community to celebrate Women’s History Month in March 2015.  

The 2015 theme is: “Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives,” and marks the 35th anniversary of the Women’s History Movement.  

COSW will kick-off the month with an opening reception and photography/video exhibit of Santa Monica women throughout history this Tuesday, Feb. 24, at 6 pm, in the foyer of Santa Monica City Hall, 1685 Main Street.

This will immediately be followed by a proclamation by City Council and the Mayor declaring March as Women’s History Month. The public is welcome to attend.

In celebration, the COSW partners with a variety of City and local organizations to promote a wide-range of programming among them the Organization of Women Leaders (OWL) Awards to outstanding women leaders, documentary films featuring the challenges and triumphs of women, a one-day conference honoring our women veterans, and exhibitions such as costumed performers coming alive at Woodlawn Cemetery on Thursday, March 20 portraying famous women from Santa Monica history. 

“We are honored to collaborate with our Santa Monica area partners who are working to celebrate the achievements of women in all facets of life. Their stories are critically important to encouraging girls and young women to think larger and bolder, and give boys and men a fuller understanding of who women are and what women can accomplish,” says Nicole Phillis, Chair of the Santa Monica Commission on the Status of Women.

For more details on all events and/or to RSVP for a particular event please visit the COSW website at http://www.smgov.net/Departments/CCS or at https://www.facebook.com/smcosw. COSW may also be contacted at cosw.mail@smgov.net.

The Commission on the Status of Women works to ensure that Santa Monica is a place where women and girls can fully realize their potential and have a strong voice in all aspects of the community.

The Commission explores policy and issues relevant to women and girls, and supports leadership and career advancement opportunities. There are nine Santa Monica residents appointed by the City Council to serve on the Commission.
