Generations of immigrants helped build our nation, our state, and our city. Too often, however, the contributions of women who settled here have gone unrecognized or underappreciated, their roles and voices obscured within the overall narrative.

Commemorating Women’s History Month, University of Missouri-Kansas City social historian Sandra Enriquez examines female immigrants—past and more contemporary—who were instrumental in shaping Kansas City’s politics, culture, and society.

Enriquez, a native of Ciudad Juárez, México, is an assistant history professor at UMKC and director of the university’s Public History emphasis. Her presentation is co-sponsored by the Kansas City Athenaeum.
