Worcester Women's History Project

A WCCA special presentation. Imagine Worcester and the World Producer Virginia Swain interviews the Voices of Worcester Women authors, Maureen Ryan Doyle and Charlene L Martin, Ed.D, Linda Rosenlund, Founder of the Worceter Women' Oral History Project, and Heather-Lynn Haley, Ph.d, President of the Worcester Women's History Project as part of a launch event for the new book. Virginia is one of the women to have an excerpt from her oral history in the book. The book will allow readers to share a glimpse into the lives of today's Worcester women and to learn a bit about their achievements and their struggles 160 years after the First National Woman's Rights Convention. After researching the stories of 250 women from diverse ethnic, socioeconomic and religious backgrounds, 69 excerpts from the original transcripts were chosen for acceptance into this book. December 6 is the first for the first public program that featured readings from Voices of Worcester Women. This event took place at the Worcester Public Library, 3 Salem Square, at 5:30 pm on December 6. visit http://voicesofworcesterwomen.blogspot.com/ and http://www.wwhp.org/ NOTE: The first 10 seconds of this video are not part of the program.
