Guam - Before dozens of women leaders on Guam, Governor Eddie Calvo proclaimed March in celebration of Women's History Month this morning at Government House in Agana Heights.

The Guam Women's Chamber of Commerce meanwhile announced its 12 Women Firsts Project which identifies Guam's women who were first in their respective fields. The honorees were Katherine Bordallo Aguon, Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo, Public Auditor Doris Flores Brooks, Rosa Roberto Carter, Olivia Torres Cruz, Agueda Johnston, U.S. Attorney for Guam and the CNMI Alicia Limtiaco, GCC president Mary Okada, Rosa Aguigui Reyes, District Court Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood, Sister Mary Inez Underwood, and Speaker Judi Won Pat.
