NEW LOCATION: Massachusetts in the Women’s Suffrage Movement with Barbara Berenson
September 14, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$10.00
First Congregational Church
68 Main Street, Falmouth
Long before the Civil War, Lucy Stone and other Massachusetts abolitionists opposed women’s exclusion from political life. They launched the organized movement at the first National Woman’s Rights Convention, held in Worcester. After the war, state activists founded the Boston-based American Woman Suffrage Association and Woman’s Journal to lead campaigns across the country. Their activities laid the foundation for the next generation of suffragists to triumph over tradition. Author Barbara Berenson gives these revolutionary reformers the attention they deserve in this compelling and engaging story and discusses the battle over historical memory that long obscured the state’s leading role.
Eight Cousins Books, our co-host, will have copies of this book at the talk.
The book will also be available in the store at 189 Main Street in Falmouth.
