Women's History Month

The Hopkinsville Human Relations Commission sponsors Women’s History Month activities which annually pay tribute to women who have contributed much to our community.

Women's History Month 2017
The Hopkinsville Humans Relations Commission will celebrate Women's History Month in March 2017. The national theme "Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business" honors women who have successfully challenged the role of women in both business and the paid labor force.
