After the 19th Amendment passed, over 50,000 Boston women registered to vote. Their handwritten voter registrations are now being transcribed and are accessible to the public. From twentysomethings to octogenarians, Boston's first women voters included housewives, factory workers, office and sales clerks, immigrants who had naturalized as U.S. citizens, Black women from the South and the Caribbean, and many others. Join members of the Mary Eliza Project to hear stories of Boston's women voters and learn how to use this free online resource for your own research.

Please note that registration is required for this event as it is taking place over Zoom.
