The staff at Durham Magazine is ecstatic to present you with our first-ever Women’s Issue.
As you’ll read in its pages, the decision to feature 35 extraordinary women in our city was the easy part – choosing from more than 150 nominations and our own list of at least 100 candidates was harder. Every single one deserved to be included, but we eventually had to make our choices.
We hope you enjoy poring over the profiles on these remarkable women, who range in their professions from elected officials to chefs to a fencer. Each has helped build our community into what it is today in one way or another, and is devoted to continuing that growth. That unwavering determination is what this issue is meant to celebrate.
Apart from introducing you to a plethora of outstanding women, the June/July issue also introduces a new feature on Hillsborough. There’s lots happening in our small-town neighbor, and we wanted to keep folks in Durham up to speed on new eats, arts and more.
Flip to page 59 to find our annual retirement guide, which takes a look at the area’s best continuing care communities. All that, plus a busy Northern High student who divides her time among multiple extracurriculars, tutoring and maintaining good grades while also holding down two part-time jobs; a healthy dose of veggies from Full Lotus Juice Bar & Café; and fondue fun at new Brightleaf Square restaurant The Little Dipper.
The June/July issue, which is complimentary, can be found on newsstands at Sam's Quik Shop, Whole Foods, The Regulator Bookshop, Parker and Otis, Bean Traders, Foster's Market, Guglhupf, Bull Street Gourmet & Market and others. Click HERE for a handy map.
