4 Ways to Celebrate Women in Nevada Year Round

As we turn the page on Women's History Month 2021, remember, it's the simple things that mean the most

By OTS Staff

Everyday should be Women’s Day. Whether we shop from women-owned businesses or learn effective ways to advocate women’s rights within our community, there’s a multitude of opportunities to celebrate women. Here’s four ways to honor the special women in our lives.

Discover Pioneering Women in Nevada

Through reading, watching documentaries and visiting museums, we can discover the women who have shaped and continue contributing to the makings of the state we know and love today. Here’s some ideas on where we can start:

  • Read: From educators to entertainers, learn all about women who impacted Nevada and strengthened our fabulous city on the Women in Nevada History website.

  • Watch: Learn about Nevada’s first female Lieutenant Governor, Sue Wagner and Alfreda Mitre, Former Chair of the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe in “Vegas PBS Documentaries: Makers III Women in Nevada History, Into the Future” here.

  • Watch: Streaming on Netflix, the documentary: “Knock Down the House” features four progressive women in politics-including New York Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and Nevada’s Politician, Amy Vilela.



Shop at and Donate to Locally-Owned Women Businesses

Now more than ever locally-owned women businesses need our support to stay open amid the pandemic. By shopping or donating to women-owned businesses, we can help them by spending our consumer dollars on their products and services. 

  • Directories: Everything from dentistry to photography services can be found in these directories of minority and women-owned Nevada businesses on the BizHwy Directory and the Vegas Inc Directory. (Be sure to call first in case any of the listings have changed).

Here’s one of the many locally-owned women businesses we can support:


Learn About Current Women’s Issues


Many women-related issues are discussed in politics and being informed affects the way we vote, discuss and think. Learn more about the challenges women faced in the past and still face today. Check out these resources:


Write A Letter To A Woman Who Inspires You

We can write a letter to a woman that inspires us. Whether it’s a relative, a friend or a local public figure, taking the time to write a letter to a woman you admire reminds her how important she is to you and can brighten her day. We never know what someone is going through so an act of kindness always goes a long way.
