We draw strength and inspiration from those who came before us and much of the Snohomish County story involves women. Transforming our culture, history and politics, women have served as leaders, writers, scientists, educators, politicians, homemakers, mothers, artists, historians, movie stars, volunteers and informed citizens. Their spirit, courage and talents have added to the richness, and diversity of our lives and their contributions continue each day. The Snohomish County Women’s Legacy Project began in 1998 as a group of volunteers to begin researching, interviewing and Quote by Myra Pollack Sadkerwriting about Snohomish County women. You can learn more about the group and read some of their stories online at snocoheritage.org.

In 2010 Washington State celebrates the centennial of its passage of Women’s Suffrage. To help celebrate this event, the legislature has created an initiative. Formed as the Women’s History Consortium of the Washington State Historical Society, the Women’s History Consortium is bringing together many groups within the state to collect and share Washington women’s history. See their website at washingtonwomenshistory.org, Everett Public Library is a partner in this project and presents here a growing database of files on Snohomish County women. Enter a keyword or a name or simply browse the collection. The Women’s Legacy Project welcomes your information about Snohomish County women you would like to see included.
