The Times-Dispatch presents Strong Voices

A celebration of Richmond women during Women's History Month


The Richmond Times-Dispatch is pleased to announce "Strong Voices: Celebrating the Power and Stories of Richmond Women." The March event and corresponding special section in The Times-Dispatch are presented in partnership with Sonabank and its P.O.W.E.R. program.

"Strong Voices" recognizes women – present and past – whose vision, impact and commitment have served Richmond and Virginia. Featured participants include community leaders Heidi Abbott, Lakshmi Challa, Christy Coleman, Laura Lafayette, Kelli Lemon, Cheryl Marin, Pam Reynolds, Lisa Sims and Nancy Thomas.

The "Strong Voices" luncheon will be held on Wednesday, March 20, at the Omni Richmond Hotel. Limited tickets are available for purchase. The special section will publish on Sunday, March 24.

A portion of the proceeds from the luncheon and special section will benefit "Voices from the Garden – The Virginia Women's Monument" at Capitol Square. Like that monument, "Strong Voices" reflects how the journey of women is an ongoing narrative.
