PLEASE NOTE: Due to precautionary measures and the State of Connecticut under a public health emergency, we will be postponing this meeting to a later date. We apologize for the late notice but felt it would be in everyone’s best interest to delay our monthly meetings until further notice.
Check back for a new date when we will be welcoming Pam Dougherty, Development Director of Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame.
In 2020 we mark the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the United States. The fight for women’s right to vote was long and took many twists and turns. Join us to learn about the Connecticut women who fought on a local, state, and national level and on whose shoulders we stand. Be inspired by their stories to use your vote to give a voice to women.
