Wilmette Women Breaking the Glass Ceiling

Through December 2020
Lower Level

This exhibit highlights some of Wilmette's most accomplished residents, women who rose to prominence in their chosen fields.  On display are iconic garments from their professions, from firefighter's gear to a 1980s "power suit," reflecting the varieties of traditionally male-dominated occupations in which local women have excelled. The garments are accompanied by stories about each woman. Also included in the exhibit is a photo gallery of notable women of Wilmette, past and present.
