Extraordinary Women of Rhode Island: A Database

The database here includes the sixty women who are highlighted in the Extraordinary Women of the East Bay Exhibit, as well as other women from Rhode Island. Please continue to check the database, as I will be adding women throughout 2020.

Spanning more than three centuries of Rhode Island’s history, the Extraordinary Women of the East Bay Exhibition recognizes and celebrates sixty women who have made a difference in their communities - Barrington, Bristol, Jamestown, Little Compton, Middletown, Newport, Portsmouth, Tiverton, and Warren.
