Cancelled: Short Skirts, Oh My! The History of Women’s Rights – March is Women’s History Month

March 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

- Free

The Concord Council on Aging’s activities and programs are cancelled until further notice.  The Harvey Wheeler Community center is closed to the public.  Thank you.

When Abigail Adams begged her husband to ‘remember the ladies’ in drafting a new code of laws, John wrote back that he ‘could not but laugh’ at her extraordinary suggestion. Less than 150 years later, women were working, voting, and experiencing the first taste of freedoms unheard of a mere generation earlier. Professional performer, Anne Barrett, comes to the COA to trace the exciting social and historical milestones in the fight for women’s rights. This program is funded by the proceeds of Harvey’s Treasure Chest Gift Shop and is offered free of charge. Please call 978-318-3020 to reserve your spot.
