In 1987, Congress designated the month of March as Women’s History Month. Since that time, U.S. Presidents have issued annual proclamations designating the month of March to continue as Women’s History Month. Women who came before us, and those who work among us, now have made some of the most important contributions to our basic life conditions: safeguarding the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the places we play.
To celebrate the achievements of women, the Council for Watershed Health is launching an educational effort to highlight the influential work of women in the environmental community to inspire future generations of leaders. One of the most important and complex challenges facing Los Angeles residents today is the safety and resilience of our local water supplies.
From boardrooms to courtrooms, community spaces and natural places across Los Angeles, women are leading the effort to ensure our water future is safe and secure for decades to come. As a result of their efforts to diligently advance the health and sustainability of our regions watershed across various fields, we know the future of LA water is female.
The first female water leader we would like recognize is none other than our very own fearless leader, Dorothy Green. To learn more about Dorothy’s work head to our blog, Thinking Upstream.
