The CCWH is devastated to share the news that our beloved former executive director, Sandra Trudgen Dawson, passed away on May 18, 2024. Sandra was a guiding light of our organization and a dear colleague and friend to many in the CCWH membership and across the world of women's history.
We invite all who knew and loved Sandra to share remembrances of her using the Contact Us button. We will be publishing tributes to Sandra over the coming months.
