Featured events, programs, and legacy projects inspire local, national, and international engagement in the themes of democracy, diversity, and opportunity.
In the early years of Jamestown and Virginia, several women emerged as powerful forces, taking charge and imparting change in their respective communities. Over the last 400 years, we’ve seen that same tenacity from women all over the Commonwealth. Today, tenacious women continue to make an impact on our state and nation. Learn more and add your own stories of tenacity at the Jamestown Settlement exhibition.
