Women’s Legacy Project


Women's Legacy Project of Snohomish County


The Women’s Legacy Project of Snohomish County, Washington seeks to honor our foremothers by recording and sharing their personal histories, their ability to adapt to the forces of change and their constant vigilance as stewards of the diverse cultures of our society.

This website is a collection of biographical stories about women’s lives.  Those women included here are from many cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds.   They worked in business, industry, government, schools, medicine and the military. Their accomplishments include creation of schools, hospitals, libraries, and churches.  They were often leaders of community organizations that provided social “safety nets ” but they could also be recipients of community services.  And as always, they were central to the invaluable creation of homes and the nurturing of families.

We are happy to announce the availability of our rotating exhibit of the Women’s Legacy Project.  It is a floor standing three panel display featuring some of the new stories about the lives of women of Snohomish County over the century and a half.    It features stories of many Native American women and their descendants as well as those who sought the many improvements in our social and business conditions.

If you are interested in displaying this exhibit in your public space or for your event contact us at the address below and we’ll make arrangements.

    Hi Megan,
    The Journal the cartoon appeared in was called “Votes for Women“. The authors found it in the University of Washington Libraries Digital Collections page. You should credit the Journal article as a source. The signature on the cartoon looks like it reads “Lulu Shuff”. We have corrected the article so the complete citation is now there. Permission to reprint isn’t something we would grant since we did not create. In this case the copyright has lapsed since it is older than 1922. But you should always give credit and it should be UW Libraries Collections.
    Great Question – Best of luck on your History Day project!
