EUREKA- Eureka High School honored women on Tuesday at the first ever EHS Women’s History Month Forum.

At the Multicultural Club event, four professionals spoke to the student body about the obstacles they’ve faced as women and how they’ve overcome them. The panel included Humboldt County Superior Court Judge Marilyn B. Miles, Redwood Capital Bank Chief Lending Officer Jennifer Budwig, EPD Sgt. Kay Howden and Humboldt County District Attorney Maggie Fleming.  The four shared their experiences with workplace discrimination, bias and even threats at their various jobs.  However, District Attorney Fleming says she hopes the event is an inspiration. 

"Knowing that there were others who were told they couldn't do certain jobs who then went ahead proceeded to prove to people they could do those jobs and that hopefully is going to open the door for more people to take on those roles," said District Attorney Fleming. 

"It just shows that they can do this, that they can succeed.  As long as you strive and work hard for it you can succeed.  It may not come easy to you but you just have to work hard and work through it," said Amelia Phan, the President of the EHS Multicultural Club.
