10th Annual Event - Worcester Women Activists
Join us for our 10th Annual Event promoting the stories of Worcester women. Worcester Women Activists. Wednesday, December 5, 2018, 5:30 p.m. at Worcester Public Library.
Worcester, MA, home of the first National Woman’s Rights Convention in 1850, was known as a center of radical abolitionist activity and social reform in the women’s rights movement. Today it is still the home of many activists who fight for social justice. Dr. Selina Gallo-Cruz and her students have conducted and transcribed over 20 oral histories of local women for the Worcester Women’s Oral History Project. She and Milagros Montenegro will share what was learned in this collaborative project, including insights into the lives of these Worcester women activists and their contributions to nonviolent social change and community building.
