The nation's first women-owned-and-operated community center has quietly done good work with 170 women's organizations since 1979, but the 1994 addition of the Maestrapeace mural showed the Women's Building for the landmark it truly is. An all-star team of muralistas covered the building with images of cross-cultural goddesses and women trailblazers, including Nobel Prize winner Rigoberta Menchú, poet Audre Lorde, artist Georgia O'Keefe and former US Surgeon General Dr Joycelyn Elders.
