In honor of Women's History Month, the Public Library of New London will be hosting a special program by the Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame (CWHF). On Sunday, March 8, 2015, from 2:00-3:30 p.m. , the CWHF will present "Celebrating 300 Years of Connecticut's Remarkable Women."
An interactive multi-media program, the Hall's "Celebrating 300 Years of Connecticut's Remarkable Women" is designed to inspire as it explores the stories of well-known figures such as Ella Grasso, Katharine Hepburn, and Marian Anderson as well as lesser known heroines like Maria Sanchez, Barbara McClintock, and Hannah Watson. This presentation also offers an introduction the Hall, its mission and programs, and gives a panoramic view of some of the Hall's 106 Inductees from across all fields of endeavor, from politics and sports to the arts and sciences.
Celebrating 300 Years is just one presentation available through the Hall's "Talks on the Road" program. Groups looking to engage with Connecticut Women's History can learn more at www.cwhf.org.
The Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame (CWHF) is an educational outreach organization whose mission is to honor publicly the achievement of Connecticut women, preserve their stories, educate the public and inspire the continued achievements of women and girls. Founded in 1994 in Hartford, Connecticut, the CWHF fills the void that traditional curricula still fail to address and today stands as the state's premier source for women's history with 109 Inductees. Through a wide spectrum of innovative statewide programs offered free of charge to Connecticut citizens, the CWHF celebrates and documents its Inductees' lives and accomplishments and now reaches more than 30,000 women and girls annually. Historically, the CWHF website has been a learning tool attracting international, national and local researchers, teachers and students. The CWHF's website, www.cwhf.org, is a "Virtual Hall" where visitors can explore its educational resources.
