Vineyard Place residents celebrate Women's History Month
Lucille Lowery spent the afternoon of March 4 discussing the challenges women face in society with her fellow Vineyard Place residents in Portland, Oregon. Bringing together both residents and members of the community, Lucille helped lead the group’s discussion on women’s rights and their important roles in history.
The former teacher, author, and artist reminisced on the importance of breaking through gender barriers imposed on women over the years and how, despite one’s upbringings or experiences, all women can relate to each other in their goals for gender equality. Other residents and community members echoed her sentiments.
“Women’s rights are the topic of conversation right now,” said Maleesa Madsen, sales leader for Vineyard Place. “Our residents have lived through some of the most progressive moments in history. It’s important to continue the discussion and to educate, empower, and motivate women of all ages during Women’s History Month.”
The already close-knit community at Vineyard Place bonded over shared histories. The crowd of women residents insisted another, similar event take place in the near future and promised to bring their husbands along so they too could join the discussion.
The Women’s History Celebration at Vineyard Place was one of many Holiday Retirement residences that celebrated Women’s History Month and the contributions of women throughout the years.
