Massachusetts was at the center of the national struggle for women's rights. 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. Come celebrate Women’s History Month by learning about Massachusetts in the Woman Suffrage Movement from author Barbara Berenson of Newton. The book will be available for purchase and signing at the conclusion of the event.Sponsored by the Friends of the Needham Public Library and the Needham League of Women Voters.
