Douglas County Historical Society presents our 8th Annual Women Defining History Luncheon and Runway Show on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at Metropolitan Community College's Institute of Culinary Arts Swanson Conference Center on 32nd and Sorensen Parkway. Each year, the event honors a local woman or organization who inspires, challenges, and serves as a model to strengthen our community through philanthropic outreach, historic preservation, or courageous efforts with our Women Defining History Award.

This year, we are thrilled to honor the League of Women Voters of Greater Omaha, who encourages informed and active participation in government and works to increase awareness and understanding of major public policy issues through education and advocacy. Learn more about the honoree here.

We will also be giving special recognition at the event to women who have been a member of both Douglas County Historical Society and League of Women Voters of Greater Omaha for supporting both organizations.
