"We really enjoyed the stage program when some local women dressed up as historic Yolo County women. I remember Margy Yutzy as Margaret McDowell. I think having a connection to the historic women from all parts of the county is important."
Sharon Freitas
formerly of West Sacramento


"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

Annual Celebration

We are excited to announce our 2023 celebration honoring Women’s History Month at the Gibson House grounds on March 18, 2023 from 11am to 1pm.

The theme of this year’s celebration is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories,” recognizing women, past and present, who have been active in all forms of media and storytelling including print, radio, TV, stage, screen, blogs, podcasts, and more. The timely theme honors women in every community who have devoted their lives and talents to producing art, pursuing truth, and reflecting the human condition decade after decade.

Please join us to hear Winters resident Gloria Lopez, author of An American Paella, a compilation of Spanish immigrant stories, who will speak about her experience as an author, historian, and curator of local history.

As always, our Yolo County Library and Archives will participate, as will the Woodland Public Library and UC Davis Library Special Collections.

Please register for the event on Eventbrite

512 Gibson Rd, Woodland

Admission: $20

Small tasting portions of Paella, Tapas, and Tortillas Espanola will be served.

Part of the mission of Yolo County Women’s Month Committee is to raise funds for our local libraries and women’s organizations, so we gratefully accept any donations or sponsorships that you are willing to provide.   

We look forward to seeing everyone on March 18th!


It is with regret that the WHM luncheon scheduled for March 2021, has been CANCELLED due to precautions concerning the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).  We are hoping that we will all be able to gather in celebration in March, 2022!  For more information about the Coronavirus, please visit Yolo County Health & Human Services.  We apologize for any inconvenience.
