Women Have Always Worked: The US Experience 1700-1920

On March 8, 2017, Columbia University and the Center for Women’s History at the New-York Historical Society will launch the first part of the Women Have Always Worked MOOC, Women Have Always Worked: The U.S. Experience 1700 – 1920, on the edX platform. This course is free and open to all. Women Have Always Worked is the first full-length MOOC on the history of women in America. The course introduces students to historians’ work to uncover the place of women and gender in America’s past. Part Two of the course will be released in early June.

Join LWVMA’s Study Committee on Charter Schools

If you’re interested in the topic of charter schools and are open-minded on this subject, LWVMA is looking for members to join the committee.  The goal is to develop a policy for LWVMA to use in advocating on the subject.  Members are researching and preparing material for local Leagues to use next fall for consensus meetings around the state.  Email info@lwvnewton.org for more info.

Civics Bee Volunteers Needed!

Let’s get started on the next LWVN civics bee!  Last year, LWVN held a civics bee at the Brown Middle School…and we’d like to make this an annual event.  Bring your ideas and knowledge to work with other LWVN members in encouraging and recognizing students who learn about our local, state and national governments.  We have our model from last year, plus info from other Massachusetts Leagues, as a place to start.  Contact info@lwvnewton.org to volunteer or ask for more information.
