Plymouth’s First Women Voters
Join Dr. Anne Mason, Executive Director of the Plymouth Antiquarian Society, for this free virtual program on the women’s suffrage movement in Plymouth. The 19th Amendment secured women’s right to vote in 1920. Who were the first women to vote in Plymouth? Hear their stories and locate the only memorials dedicated to their lives: their gravestones.
Visit the Plymouth Antiquarian Society’s Facebook page to tune in at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 6th. You do not need to have a Facebook account to view the livestream. The broadcast will be recorded and shared after the event for later viewing as well.
For more information, email Anne Mason or call 508-746-0012.
About the First Saturday History Tour Series
2021 marks the 400th anniversary of the first full year of European settlement at Plymouth. On the first Saturday of each month the Pilgrim Society and the Plymouth Antiquarian Society will present a series of free, virtual programs exploring “firsts” in local history, some well-known and others less familiar. Stepping into a new decade of partnership, the two organizations will broadcast thematic tours of Burial Hill and other historic sites in Plymouth.
