48 Most intriguing Women of Arizona

 Historical League members Susan Dale, Pat Faur, Norma Jean Coulter, and Margaret Baker attended the 48 Women event held at the Arizona Biltmore.

48 Arizona Women and the Arizona Historical Society selected the 48 Most Intriguing Women of Arizona for 2022, among them an astronaut, a fire department chief and a young collegiate golfer with Downs Syndrome.
Now 11 years old, 48 Arizona Women, the sponsoring organization based in Scottsdale, started as an official Arizona Centennial Project in 2010 to recognize the state’s most remarkable women having a remarkable impact in their communities, often with little fanfare. The organization’s mission is to transform lives, build stronger communities and help positively shape Arizona and the nation.
