In honor of Women’s History Month, Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs announced that starting next week the City of Milwaukee will honor notable Milwaukee women on the official city website and the City Channel. The initiative will run March 11 through March 17 and celebrates women who have made a lasting impact on Milwaukee through their contributions.

“Milwaukee is proud to recognize the women who have shaped this city’s rich history and continue to inspire their communities. These women are innovators, leaders, and trailblazers who paved the way for future generations of women,” Alderwoman Coggs said. “On International Women’s Day, I am proud to announce the celebration of the amazing women who contributed so much to the City of Milwaukee and the country as a whole.”

The Women’s History Milwaukee initiative will highlight several key local figures in history who are either from Milwaukee or have strong ties to the city. During this informational campaign, the official city website (city.milwaukee.gov) will feature photos and facts about the women of Milwaukee’s history, and these same informational vignettes will also run regularly during City Channel programming.

The initiative will complement Girls’ Day @ City Hall, the annual event that Alderwoman Coggs created to expose young women to career options in public service, engage them in their community and inspire them to achieve. The 9th Annual Girls’ Day @ City Hall is scheduled to take place on Thursday, March 14, and more information is available at milwaukee.gov/district6/girlsdayreg.

NOTE: All registration options for Girls’ Day 2019 are CLOSED as the event is at capacity.
