 Oral History Project

Worcester

The site of the first National Woman’s Rights Convention in 1850, and home to Abby Kelley Foster, radical abolitionist and women’s rights activist.

Did you know it happened in Worcester County?

The Asa Butman Riot happened in 1854 when Worcester abolitionists forced this notorious slave-kidnapper to leave the city.

The Worcester Women’s History Project (WWHP) is a nonprofit all-volunteer educational organization dedicated to celebrating and documenting the contribution of women to the history, social fabric and culture of Worcester and beyond.

We remember our past to better shape our future.
