Against the Odds: Pioneering Women of Monterey County

Whether labeled “hell on wheels,” “pillars of the community” or “agents of change”, the energy, wisdom, and courage of the women featured in this exhibition were forces to be reckoned with during their lifetimes. Their accomplishments and contributions to the betterment of Monterey County communities underlie countless local ordinances, institutions, and civic benefits that we take for granted today.
