Lisa Connellly Cook presents to Ukrainian Delegation

The International Center of Worcester (ICW) contacted WWHP for a speaker to talk to a delegation visiting from Ukraine on April 3, 2014. Lisa Connelly Cook presented a program based on her research on the history of feminism in Worcester. She ended with an over-view of the work of WWHP up to the present time, highlighting the recent unveiling of Abby's letters online. The visitors represented a range of human rights and justice work, from accessibility for people with disabilities to respect for all gender identities and gay rights, and included media, education and business sec-tors. The presentation led to a lively discussion about local history and present situations in Ukraine and in the United States.
