From the 15 women who initially gathered as charter directors, Las Señoras is today an awe-inspiring organization of more than 100 members. Its mission? As in the early days, it is to come to the aid of the Museum. Each year, Las Señoras presents the Museum with the fruits of its labors—a generous check to be used for everything from paint to payroll.Let’s face it. Women of the West are a breed apart. Whether they are born here or arrive later, they seem to have a spirit that just comes with the territory. Call it part drive, part resourcefulness, part staying power, but more than anything else it’s a force to be reckoned with. One that has put women at the heart of all that has happened in the West from the beginning...and at the heart of all that has happened at our museum...nearly from the beginning.
