Support Woman-Owned Businesses

As Pasadena celebrates Women's History Month, we encourage visitors to support local woman-owned businesses.

Women have played a pivotal part of shaping Pasadena's culture. From NASA/JPL's "human calculator" Rocket Girls, to Octavia Butler (author), to Sally Field (actress), to Julia Child (chef), to Julia Morgan (architect), to Loretta Thompson-Glickman (first Black mayor of Pasadena), to the 1999 US Women's Soccer Team, and so many more, these women have set records and defied boundaries in their fields.

We are more than proud of the ladies who have left their mark on our city, and we encourage you to join us in supporting all the women in Pasadena as they continue to make it a great place to live. Below is a list of some of the local restaurants and retailers owned, run, and lovingly cared for by the women of Pasadena.
