Join us in person for “Eight Great of the Sunshine State” on Tuesday, March 29, 2022 at 10:30 AM.

With first names like Zora, Marjorie, Harriett, Mary, and last names like Hurston, Stoneman Douglas, Bedell and Bethune, Florida’s female trailblazers paved the way for women rights, healthcare reform and civil rights. You can thank a Florida woman if you’ve ever learned about or felt compelled to visit the Everglades, received breast cancer treatment or attended a historically black college or university. In honor of Women’s History Month, we invite you to learn about and examine the lives and accomplishments of eight remarkable women who made their marks as Great Floridians.

Instructor Anne Gardepe, whose fields of interest lies in women’s history and the Sunshine State, will lead you in a lively, in-depth discussion focused on the women who not only changed the state of Florida but the world. Gardepe will present two female pioneers during each session in this series.

In this session, you’ll learn more about:

  • Julie Tuttle, the Mother of Miami
  • Marjory Stoneman Douglas, Guardian of the Glades

 

This program is presented by Anne Gardepe and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
