For over a decade the City of West Hollywood, CA has honored women during Women’s History Month in March with large, colorful banners throughout the city. From the light posts hang images of prominent women who have made history. Some of the many women honored are Rosa Parks, Adrienne Rich, Sally Ride, Shirley Chisholm. Maya Angelou, Nancy Pelosi, Jane Fonda, Mary Pickford, and LGBT leader Barbara Gittings.
This year, 2017, West Hollywood honored Michelle Obama and suffrage leader INEZ MILHOLLAND. The two women joined the other banners for the month, and will reappear in the future. Martha Wheelock, shown here, is the filmmaker of “Forward into Light,” the 15-minute film popular for use in schools, colleges, and for organizational programs.
