Bothell’s female leaders celebrate International Women’s Day

Bothell has many women on its executive team and City Council.

On March 8, which was International Women’s Day, the city of Bothell celebrated its female leaders.

International Women’s Day honors the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, and marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

Many of the employees on Bothell’s executive team are women, led by city manager Jennifer Phillips.

“I asked several women leaders in the city of Bothell if they would mind posing for a photo to recognize the day and the contributions women have made and are making,” communications officer Barbara Ramey said in an email. “I was planning to take the photo (not be in it!) until Mike Johnson [of the Bothell Police Department] offered to help out and brought a volunteer photographer.”

March is also Women’s History Month. The origins of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month date back to 1911, but it wasn’t until 1987 that it became an official national celebration.

“We have many more women in leadership at the city not pictured, this is just a few of them,” Ramey said, adding that Bothell’s deputy mayor and two of its councilmembers are women. “We are fortunate to have so many smart, talented women at the city of Bothell.”
