Often women have had to fight against the social norms of the day to dream the impossible. Through their grit, they have made things happen. These are the women we honor.
Dr. Priscilla Porter will highlight the women who have braved the heat and dust in the forlorn desert outpost, right up to the women of today who continue to brave the unknown in their pursuit of a better life for all who live here.
This presentation honors pioneer women, entrepreneurs, aviators, and elected officials. The women featured are but a few of the multitudes of women who could have been included.
This lecture is based on the Coachella Valley History Museum’s exhibit and publication by the same name, Women Behaving Badly…for Good. Join this Zoom lecture on Thursday, April 15 at 1 p.m.
Dr. Priscilla H. Porter is Professor Emeritus of California State University, Dominguez Hills. The senior author of Reflections, a Kindergarten to Grade 6 social studies textbook series published by Harcourt School Publishers, Dr. Porter is a recipient of the California Council for the Social Studies prestigious Hilda Taba Award.
