Suffrage 100: Massachusetts Women at the Forefront of Change
Thursday, November 7, 2019, 6:00-7:30pm (Reception at 5:30pm)
Old South Meeting House, 310 Washington Street, Boston
Fredie Kay, Founder and President of Suffrage100MA will provide an overview of the suffrage movement in American history, with special attention to Massachusetts activists who paved the way for women’s suffrage, including African Americans and other marginalized groups. Join us for a reception with light refreshments and a special opportunity to view several of the “Suffragist of the Month“ display panels, created by a partnership of the Commonwealth Museum, Secretary William F. Galvin, and Suffrage100MA. The monthly display panels started in August 2017 and will be created through August 2020, the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Suffragists from Massachusetts and other parts of the country are featured, as well as panels about historic events, such as “Worcester Takes the Lead.”
This program is made possible with funding from the Lowell Institute. Free and open to the public, registration is requested.
