Administrative History

The Hispanic Women's Network of Texas (HWNT) was formed in 1987 by inviting members of existing women's and Hispanic groups from around the state to create an organization that would address issues unique to Hispanas. HWNT chapters exist in Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Denton, Fort Worth, Houston, Laredo, the Rio Grande Valley, and San Antonio. HWNT seeks to advance the educational, cultural, social, legal and economic well-being of all women through a broader awareness of their role in society, business and family. Members strive to celebrate the positive image and values of the Hispanic culture.
