Welcome to the web home of the Benzie Area Women's History Project. This group, based in Benzie County, Michigan, is comprised of area women dedicated to educating ourselves and others about the women of our past, women whose voices are not always heard.
For the last 32 years we've presented an annual event, usually held in March, celebrating women's history. This year we will have two—a film in March and another program in mid-April.
There will be a reception the day before, Friday, March 7, from 5 to 7 p.m., at the Oliver Art Center in Frankfort for an exhibit Honoring Women: Character, Courage and Commitment. The show will continue through April 11.
A second event, scheduled for Thursday, April 10, 4 p.m., will be held in connection with the Benzonia Academy Lecture Series at the Mills Community House in Benzonia. Find out more as the information becomes available.
If you'd like to be on our mailing list, or to send us your comments or suggestions, please see the contact page.
We also fund a yearly scholarship for a non-traditional female student at Northwestern Michigan College. This year's recipient was Jessica Johnson.
