Norwalk's Remarkable Hill Sisters and the Struggle for Equality
Saturday, March 3, 2018

2:00pm

Norwalk Historical Society Museum

In celebration of Women's History Month, the Norwalk Historical Society will be presenting a new lecture entitled: "Norwalk's Remarkable Hill Sisters and the Struggle for Equality" by local educator and researcher Alice Warren on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 2:00pm at the Norwalk Historical Society Museum. 141 East Avenue, Norwalk, CT. Learn how three sisters from Norwalk, CT  Clara Mossman Hill, Helena Hill Weed, and Elsie Mary Hill  struggled for suffrage and womens rights during the 20th century.


Norwalk's Hill Sisters, daughters of a U.S. congressman, worked tirelessly for the passage and ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, crisscrossing the country giving lectures, organizing marches, and even going to jail after picketing the White House during the First World War.  After ratification in 1920, the Hills continued to fight for feminist causes during the post-suffrage decades, when many historians contended that women had lost interest in issues of civil and economic rights.  This illustrated 45-minute talk will introduce you to these remarkable women, whose advocacy for full equality helped sustain movement goals and tactics for future generations of feminists.

**Please note that the lecture will take place upstairs and seating is limited.

If there is inclement weather, the lecture will be rescheduled for Sunday, March 4, 2018 at 2:00pm.
