Women’s History Month stories

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 has been honoring the contributions of these women with a month-long series, the last of which is this week. This week’s edition will be focused on women in the continuation of health and wellness, and town and government positions.
We asked the following questions: 1) What brought you to the island? 2) What is your background? 3) What does it mean to be a woman on Block Island? 4) What has been your proudest achievement? 5) What words of encouragement would you give to other women?
