In celebration of Women’s History Month, local historian Shanna Stevenson will highlight Thurston County women and their impact on our community at the March 1st History Talk at the Schmidt House. Their influence goes well beyond getting the right to vote. The History Talks are part of the Olympia Tumwater Foundation’s Heritage Builders program.
Stevenson has considerable experience on the topic of women’s history in Washington State. She has a BA in history and education from Gonzaga University and a Masters in Public Administration from The Evergreen State College. She has worked in historic preservation for nearly 20 years through her work with the Thurston Regional Planning Council. She retired in 2014 from the Washington State Historical Society where she was the Coordinator of the Washington Women’s History Consortium from 2006 to 2014. Currently, an independent historian, Stevenson is a board member of the Olympia Historical Society.
