What is it about Taos that has allowed women to thrive for so long? Find out with our Remarkable Women of Taos special section.
Maybe it's the 300 days of sunshine every year? Maybe it has something to do with the relative isolation of Taos, and the fact that if women weren't allowed to be creative and productive members of society, the fabric of the community would collapse.
Whatever the reason, our corner of the world has witnessed a wonderful array of women from all walks of life. Of course there are the famous artists, writers and socialites but there is also a long history of strong and inspiring business women in our community. In modern-day Taos the business world is nearly dominated by women.
So it's more than fitting that the town of Taos' 2012 vistor education theme is "Remarkable Women of Taos."
