The King County Council is proclaiming March as Women’s History Month. The vote occurred on the same day the council took yet another significant step in making the county code gender-neutral.
The council took the opportunity to celebrate the historic contributions that women of every race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic background have made, and continue to make, in the growth, and strength of King County, Washington State, our nation, and around the world.
“While celebrating how far we’ve come we must also acknowledge the work that remains to be done,” said Councilmember Jeanne Kohl-Welles. “We must work to ensure that all women, regardless of socioeconomic status, age, racial and ethnic background, sexual orientation, or ability, are treated equitably.”
