This program will examine the long history of women's activism over the course of the nineteenth century, to highlight the multi-faceted mosaic of the women's suffrage movement. Taking place at Southwest Branch library, participants will explore the diverse paths-from educational access and abolitionism to temperance and suffrage-that led women to engage in civic and public life to make a difference in their own communities.
