We celebrated Lowell Women’s Week’s 19th year at our Annual Breakfast on March 3, 2014. It was a morning of inspiring words, community, and recognizing the achievements of extraordinary women in greater Lowell.
This year’s keynote speaker was Linda Sopheap Sou. Linda is the daughter of Cambodian immigrants who was born and raised in Lowell. She is the director of the Lowell Community Health Center’s Teen Block Programs Center which supports the healthy development of young people while empowering them to become community leaders. Through her work with the Angkor Dance Troupe, Linda promotes an understanding and appreciation for Cambodian culture while also providing a positive social/educational awareness of inter-generational challenges facing Cambodian youth.
This year’s “Because of Her Award” winners were also featured at the breakfast, honored for their creative and positive ways of meeting real needs in the community.
Lowell Women’s Week will be collecting donations for women in area shelters at the breakfast and at the Lowell National Historical Park visitor center (246 Market St.) all week! Items include:
- hair conditioner
- shaving cream & safety razors
- toothpaste & toothbrushes
- other personal care products.
Please contact Katelyn Adams with questions. Thank you for your generosity!

Donations assist with overall costs of the inspiring, educational programming that is a hallmark of our organization. “Overall costs “ include and are not limited to website fees, printing, publicity purchases, and catering/venue charges for the annual breakfast. Since the inception of Lowell Women’s Week, we have worked hard to involve students in our programming. As a result, we offer limited discount breakfast tickets for students. Donations defray these costs.
All costs are approved by the Lowell Women’s Week committee. Lowell Women’s Week does not have a tax number and is not a 501-C3 tax exempt organization. Donations are not tax deductible. Sponsors will be acknowledged on the Lowell Women’s Week website and in the program during the Lowell Women’s Week annual breakfast.
