In honor of Women’s History Month, the Norwalk Historical Society and the League of Women Voters of Norwalk are partnering to host the virtual lecture, “Powerful Voices: Connecticut Women Changing Democracy,” with guest presenter Liz Krebs, Education Manager for the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame, on Wednesday, March 30, 2022 at 7:00pm via Zoom.

Connecticut’s history is filled with remarkable women who achieved extraordinary things! Join us for an interactive multi-media program by the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame and learn about some of the state’s powerful female voices for change in our democracy. Discover the power your own voice can have by exploring the inspirational stories of suffrage advocates like Alice Paul and Isabella Beecher Hooker, prominent female firsts like Ella Grasso and Denise Nappier and social activists like Helen Keller, Anne Stanback and Estelle Griswold.

About the Presenter

The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame honors the achievements of women by celebrating their legacies and telling their powerful stories, inspiring women and girls to realize their own limitless potential. Founded in 1994 in Hartford, Connecticut, the Hall fills the void that traditional curricula still fails to address and, today, stands as the state’s premier source for Connecticut women’s history with 136 Inductees. These women’s lives and accomplishments are celebrated and documented through a wide spectrum of innovative statewide programs, which the Hall offers to Connecticut citizens.
