48 ARIZONA WOMEN
48 Women, Arizona's Most Intriguing Women, is an Arizona Centennial Legacy initiative that every ten years recognizes Arizona women who are making a remarkable impact in their communities, often with little fanfare. Their accomplishments have transformed lives, built stronger communities and shaped Arizona and the nation. Based in Scottsdale, 48 Arizona Women is a 10-year-old 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and a major partner of the Arizona Historical Society.
Legacy 2020 reunites 48 Arizona Women honorees in an initiative to renovate the Orientation Theater at the Arizona Heritage Center of the Arizona Historical Society in Tempe, and the development of ongoing learning programs and renowned speakers twice yearly to help primarily young women, girls and youth reach their best potential in communities statewide and across the nation.
The AHS is committed to directing and expanding women's and youth programming in Maricopa County and the 65 AHS-certified historical societies found in Arizona to connect people with the power of history. Launching the initiative this year will be even more significant as it is the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment.
Learn about the greatness of these women and their accomplishments through the Legacy Project Book, Arizona's 48 Most Intriguing Women. You’ll be inspired by the courage, passion and tireless energy they’ve demonstrated in helping to create and shape the richness of Arizona.
