Jennie Powers : The Woman Who Dares

February 1st, 2021 · No Comments · City Library, Events, Main Branch, Virtual Programs

The Manchester City Library will celebrate Women’s History month with a virtual program about one prominent New Hampshire woman who took a stand against animal cruelty, family violence, and widespread poverty in New Hampshire’s Monadnock region and beyond.

Jenna Carroll, Director of Education at the Historical Society of Cheshire County, joins us on Monday, March 8, 2021, at 6:00 PM via Zoom to shine a light on Jennie Powers, “The Woman Who Dares”. This one-hour, illustrated presentation introduces us to Jennie’s life story, the work of humane societies at the turn of the century, and the politics of the Progressive Era (1890s-1920s) from a local perspective. A Q&A session will follow.

This program is sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities.
