Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope

This is an exhibition that was created for Women's History Month, March 2022 and is based on the National Women's History Alliance's theme for 2022: "Providing Healing, Promoting Hope."

This theme is both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during the ongoing pandemic and is also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history.

This exhibition provides information about the Yolo County Women who were healers and providers of hope during WWI and in their work with Yolo General Hospital.


This display was created by: Heather Lanctot (Yolo County Archives & Records Center Coordinator), Mel Russell (Historian and former Yolo County Archives Coordinator), and Danni Greenlee (Yolo County Library Graphic Designer)
