From Susan B. Anthony, one of the country's most recognized women's rights activists to Brynn Cartelli, this year's Season 14 winner of NBC's singing competition The Voice, women in Massachusetts have powerful stories to tell and many of those stories are shared in the new book, The Power of Women: Celebrating Women from Western and Central Massachusetts from the 1600s to the Present Day.
These stories, and more, are featured in The Power of Women, a new book from The Republican which highlights influential women from the 1600s to today. Profiles of 1,000 women are featured in the book.
Pioneer Valley History Network (PVHN) members will recognize some of the stories from the 2011 web-based project "Remarkable Women of the Pioneer Valley." That project was one of the many sources used in this book.
At the book-signing event at Historic Northampton on December 13th, the editors, Wayne E. Phaneuf, editor of The Republican, and historian Joseph Carvalho III, will speak about making the book and show a short video. They will sign copies, available for purchase at a special price. Part of the proceeds will help support the Pioneer Valley History Network (PVHN) and Historic Northampton.
