On Saturday, September 22, more than 300 people gathered at The Grand here in Long Beach as the Long Beach Post, in a partnership with Choura Events, presented its inaugural 30 Women to Watch event, a night designed to honor the many female citizens of this city who are altering the landscape with their own definitions of what it means to be a woman.

In addition to featuring the winners in a special pull-out section in the most recent print edition of thePost, we will be running profiles and photos of each woman, one per day, for the next 30 days.
