March 19th at 2 pm in the Great Room
Presented by Boston Women’s Heritage Trail member Mary Smoyer
In celebration of the centennial passage of the 19th amendment, the Boston Women’s Heritage Trail is presenting the story of local leaders and significant events in the crusade to gain the right to vote at public libraries across Massachusetts. Join us to learn about the many organizations who worked to gain women the right to vote as well as the 1919 arrest of suffragists and leaders such as Maud Wood Park, Mary Kenney O’Sullivan, Josephine St. Pierre Ruffin, and Lucy Stone.
Mary Smoyer, founding member of the Boston Women’s Heritage Trail, will share with us this grand history of women in Massachusetts. Learn stories you never heard before as we celebrate Women’s History Month.
