WestportREADS: Hall of Fame: Women and War

Fri, December 6 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm EST

As a part of WestportREADS, join the discussion. The Women have been involved in military conflicts from the beginning of time; some as warriors, some as spies and others who made the munitions or simply called for peace.

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. CWHF Inductees prove that women are just as tough as men and will inspire others to shatter gender barriers. 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. 

Artifacts related to women’s contributions to war from the Westport Museum’s collection will be on display. 

There is no charge for this event however reservations are recommended, register online here or call (203) 222-1424 x5.  Light refreshments will be served. 

Presented by the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame, to learn more visit cwhf.org/
