Long before the Civil War, Lucy Stone and other abolitionists launched the organized women’s movement. After the war, state activists founded the Boston-based American Woman Suffrage Association to lead
campaigns across the country. Their work laid the foundation for the next generation of suffragists to triumph over tradition.

Barbara Berenson is the author of Massachusetts in the Woman Suffrage Movement: Revolutionary Reformers (2018), Boston in the Civil War: Hub of the Second Revolution (2014), and Walking Tours of Civil War Boston: Hub of Abolitionism (2011, 2d ed. 2014). She is the co-editor of Breaking Barriers: The Unfinished Story of Women Lawyers and Judges in Massachusetts (2012). Barbara earned her undergraduate degree from Harvard College and her law degree from Harvard Law School. She works as a Senior Attorney at the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. She is on the boards of Boston By Foot and the Royall House & Slave Quarters.

Her talk is Monday, September 16 at 7pm at the Wayland Public Library
