The Women’s Suffrage Celebration Coalition, which includes LWVMA, celebrates Women’s Equality Day Thursday, Aug. 24, at the Swan Boat Landing in the Boston Public Garden from noon to 1 p.m. The League will be registering voters and we need some volunteers. If you’d like to help, please contact Mary Ann Ashton.
Speakers will include Fredie D. Kay, CoalitionPresident; Megan Costello, Executive Director, Mayor’s Office of Women’s Advancement; and Eric Jenkins-Sahlin, documentary filmmaker, who is Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s great-great-great-grandson.
William F. Galvin, Secretary of the Commonwealth, will unveil the Suffrage Centennial Display Panel Project, a joint effort by his office, the Massachusetts Archives and the Commonwealth Museum.
