Women of Truckee Making History

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Women of Truckee Making History is a book that celebrates local women for their contributions to the community of Truckee, California.[1] It was compiled, designed and edited by two Truckee women, Parvin Darabi and Lydia Sparksworthy.[1][2]

The book published at 2002 by Homa Darabi Foundation, a non-profit organisation dedicated to human rights issues mostly related to women.[1]

The book details the lives of 30 influential women in Truckee.[3] The criteria for selecting the 30 women required applicants to live or work full-time in Truckee, and “to be actively involved in voluntarism which required dedication above and beyond normal eight-to-five, 40-hours-a week paid employment.”[4]
