Women & War

The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame will deliver this multimedia presentation celebrating some of the state’s notable women. Connecticut women are among the finest and bravest who have stood for their cause–sometimes defying gender norms, and often without the recognition they deserved. Learn about a teenager who helped save Danbury during the Revolutionary War, how Harriet Beecher Stowe sowed the seeds of conflict leading to the Civil War, and how Margaret Bourke-White’s photography brought civilians face to face with the war front for the first time and much more. . . . Space may be limited. Advance registration, social distancing and mask wearing are required. Offerings and details may change along with the changing public health scenario and in accordance with the Governor’s Sector Rules for Libraries.
