Calling All Speakers!!

The Worcester Women’s History Project is establishing a Speakers’ Bureau. A number of local organizations look for speakers every year for their programs, especially on topics related to women’s history. These organizations include women’s groups, churches, PTO school groups, and Senior Centers, as well as others.

We are now asking for members interested in making presentations before these groups to contact the WWHP office ( with their names and list of appropriate topics they can discuss. The topics will be included in a brochure to be placed on our website and made avail-able in libraries and other convenient public places.

Recently a woman’s group in the area requested speakers on "Distinguished Women" through the WWHP office. Ann Marie Shea has now scheduled a presentation on Frances Perkins for them, and also Margaret Watson will be speaking about two women publishers, Mary Goddard and Katherine Graham.

If you would like to be included in the "WWHP Speakers’ Bureau" brochure, please contact the WWHP office at and submit your name and topics. The deadline for these submissions is Nov 1.
