Honoring Adelina "Nina" Otero-Warren
We come to the last days of Women's History Month with a reminder that women have played an important role in, not only Santa Fe, but throughout New Mexico. One such woman was Adelina Otero-Warren, suffragette and activist for democracy. She used her
Spanish language to make change in the state during the early part of the 20th century.
