President's Message for 2014


March is National Women’s History Month, and March is WWHP Membership Month. Since joining WWHP several years ago and serving on the Steering Committee, I have become acquainted with some amazing women. Now, as your newly-elected president, I am honored and humbled to be involved with WWHP in another dimension. There are opportunities for challenge and growth within WWHP. They are here for all.

A few weeks ago, we lost one of the first men to join our work. Ken Moynihan, historian and journalist, was called "the conscience of Worcester County." He also assisted in ensuring Abby s Hall of Fame. He understood the need to document and celebrate the contributions of the many men and women who worked toward "equality before the law without distinction of sex or color." 

Please support the work of WWHP by renewing your membership or joining if you have been thinking about it. As a member, you may vote at the annual meeting on our future direction and also may be nominated to serve on the steering committee. You will receive a discount on ticketed events and will receive the semi-annual newsletter. Let us know if you are interested in volunteering on a committee.

Your voice, your action and your ideas are necessary. With your support we will not forget the efforts of our pioneering women and men, like Abby Kelley and Stephen Foster who joined with activists from all walks of life to demand "equality before the law without distinction of sex or color."

Thank you, sincerely,

Dianne Bruce
