May 17 – Provocative Mothers and Their Precocious Daughters

May 17 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Presented By: Worcester Historical Museum

Suzanne Schnittman, author of “Provocative Mothers and Their Precocious Daughters: 19th Century Women’s Rights Leaders,” will share her stories about Abby Kelley Foster and her daughter, plus three other mother/daughter teams.  Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Mothers and daughters share a special bond that ebbs and flows throughout their lives. It may not always be solid, but no matter what difficulties they face, their relationships are usually unbreakable.

Take a step back in time to uncover the engaging lives of four mothers and daughters. As pioneer women’s rights leaders, Martha Wright, Abby Kelley Foster, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Lucy Stone worked diligently for what they believed women deserved. Letters, diary entries, and journals reveal the strong mother-daughter relationships that not only enriched their personal lives, but the woman suffrage movement as a whole.

From the mid-1800s to the early 1900s, these women struggled to make the world a better place. Through their actions and beliefs, they forged a path for future generations and raised daughters to be determined young women who merit our attention today.
