Welcome to the Women’s History and Culture Center in Mesquite, NV!
The mission of the Women’s History and Culture Center is to share information on women’s achievements and multicultural issues that will help improve the quality of life of women and men in the greater Mesquite area.
Jean Watkins is the founder of the Women’s History and Culture Center, which opened in 2018. We believe strongly in empowering women, both young and old, to rise above their circumstances.
“Our Center is a resource for people who want to add meaning to their lives, expand their horizons – open more doors to what their future can be and most important, find out what their passions are, as I did when I started the center.” – Jean Watkins
The center is home to over 700 books, many of them biographies. Our books are some of our greatest resources. Ms. Watkins poured her energy and passions into the Women’s Center and it greatly benefits and enriches the lives of so many people in our community.
The Women’s History and Culture Center has a fully-equipped kitchen and tea room, ready at all times for having tea with friends, reading one of our many books, and for educational classes. We also have a meeting room that can host up to 24 people for seminars and special events.
