Honoring island women for Women’s History Month

March is Women’s History Month, a time to honor and celebrate the contributions of women in society.
Block Island is benefited every day by the work of a diverse and hard-working group of women: the majority of high-level island positions are held by women. The Block Island Times will be honoring the contributions of these women with a month-long series, beginning this week.
