2016 Women’s History walk

at Camron-Stanford HouseOn Saturday, we had a great turnout for the 3rd annual Women’s History walk, with more than 50 people of all ages turning out to learn about some of the remarkable women in Oakland’s history. As Annalee Allen and I warned at the start, there are too many notable women to talk about, but we covered as many as we could with as much information as we could.

A map of our route and some of the other points of interest is here, and more photos from the walk can be viewed here. The places we stopped and the women we talked about are listed below. Note that most of these are links to oaklandwiki.org where you find more information and images about the person or place.
