February 28: Commemorating the Boston Protest of 1919 by the Suffragists

Please save the date for our next event, Thursday, February 28, 2019, at noon. On this date, we will commemorate the centennial of the last arrests of the 72-year suffrage movement that took place when suffragists, picketing President Woodrow Wilson on his visit to the Massachusetts State House, were arrested and sent to the Charles Street Jail.

The event is co-sponsored by the Brandeis University Women’s Studies Research Center, the Boston Women’s Heritage Trail, and the Women’s Suffrage Celebration Coalition of Massachusetts. More details to follow. The women arrested and jailed at this Boston protest were some of the many brave women who sacrificed much to secure the right to vote for women.
