Women Who Rock

celebrating every day local heroes

Top City Ladies

From our dynamic (and first Hispanic) mayor to a mother / drummer/ church volunteer; From the ladies who started the Topeka Free Little Library to the women who started Topeka + Shawnee County Public Library 150 years ago  – Topeka’s history and culture, and our every day lives, are inherently better thanks to a number of  Women Who Rock. Perhaps Annette Hope Billing’s wrote it best:

to demand her home town be
more than good place to grow potatoes—
be good place to grow black girls too.

seveneightfive is proud to share these women’s stories each February in our annual Top City Ladies / Women Who Rock issue.  We celebrate women who are rockin’ Topeka day-in an day-out, whether it’s helping our neighbors, providing great food, art and entertainment or carrying out traditions and community culture – they are all building legacies. We thank all the amazing women who make our community better and invite you to do the same.
