On Sunday December 1st, 16+ people participated in the book group discussion with Newton resident and author Barbara F. Berenson. We had an interesting and lively discussion of the history and the implications for woman’s rights and social justice in today’s political & cultural environment.
If you have not read her book, Massachusetts in the Woman Suffrage Movement, Barbara tells the riveting story of woman suffrage with a focus on those women in Massachusetts who shaped both the national and state movements. It is highly recommended that you read this very interesting book, as we prepare for the 2020 celebration of the League of Women Voters and the passage of the 19th Amendment
We thank Barbara for giving some of her precious time to the League and to Frieda for orga nizing this educational session.
