Framingham’s Daring Dozen

Sunday, March 25th
2:00 p.m.
Edgell Memorial Library, 3 Oak Street

In 2003, former Town Historian Steve Herring created a list of Framingham women whom he felt should be recognized as part of a hypothetical Framingham Women’s Memorial, or what we might now think of as a Women’s Hall of Fame.  Considering 300 years of history, he narrowed his list to 10 women of “great talent, ability, and strength.”He chose:  Mary Eames, Sarah Clayes, Lydia Learned, Hannah Nixon, Mary Eames Rice, Margaret Knight, Louise Mayo, Meta Warrick Fuller, Mirriam Van Waters, and Christa McAuliffe.

Come and hear Steve’s brief biographies on these women presented by some of Framingham’s most inspiring women of today.

In observance of Women’s History Month, we’ll add two more remarkable women to Herring’s list… making it a “Daring Dozen”!

Please join us in nominating two additional women from Framingham’s past to this list! Nominations (a name and a paragraph of history) will be accepted by email to laura@framinghamhistory.org or phone 508-626-9091 from February 12th through 28th.

Actual voting takes place March 1st  – 16th either by Facebook poll or email/call-in to 508-626-9091.

This is a fun, collaborative program meant to inspire and inform us of Framingham’s remarkable women.
