about the april issue

There’s no shortage of incredible women in Hawai‘i—wāhine who work tirelessly on behalf of others, blaze trails for women and lead by example, even when that means standing up against deeply rooted injustices. From artists to educators to those at the forefront of their industry, these fearless females are an inspiration for all—regardless of gender. For our April issue, the HONOLULU team put the spotlight on some of these talented individuals who prove glass ceilings are meant to be shattered.
