La Canoa Legacy Talks - Past, Present, and Future: Mujeres Valerosas and the Hispanic Women’s Council
This lecture was part of the La Canoa lecture series presented by UNM's Center for Regional Studies and the National Hispanic Cultural Center.
The Hispanic Women’s Council (HWC) was formed in Albuquerque in 1988 to “promote, support, and create opportunities for Hispanic Women.” Local women came together to help each other advance in their professions, increase the number of women participating in policy-making, and serve as role models for other women. Each woman in the HWC has her own story of success and accomplishment which have been captured in the book, Mujeres Valerosas, published by the HWC in 2000. Join us for readings by Dr. Carmen Samora and Vangie Samora from this book and for discussion about the Hispanic Women’s Council. Proceeds from the book support the HWC Scholarship Fund.
