California's Remarkable Women

Overview

California’s Remarkable Women

California has always been replete with remarkable women. As community leaders and activists, inventors and entertainers, as mothers, daughters, sisters and partners, California’s remarkable women serve 24/7 on the front lines of humanity.

Extraordinary women from every walk of life strengthen, shape and serve our great state. This exhibit honors their significant roles and achievements, drawing its inspiration from past and present achievements of California women. In doing so, it delivers an energetic message about the limitless opportunities and possibilities awaiting present and future generations of women leaders.

From farm worker organizer Dolores Huerta to astronaut Sally Ride to designer Ray Eames, the exhibit includes approximately 200 remarkable California women. Inspired by former First Lady Maria Shriver, the exhibit is presented in partnership with California State Parks.
