Acton Woman’s Club 2020-2021 Programs
In normal times, our monthly meetings consist of a lovely luncheon, time to visit, and then a quick business meeting before our program. Due to the restrictions of the Coronavirus Pandemic, our activities are strictly curtailed. However, we are now having our monthly “Luncheon” Meetings via ZOOM. Times are uncertain, so keep tuned for updates.

Also included will be the important role of Worcester and the many suffragists of Massachusetts, including women of color, and the enormous, but unfortunately failed effort of women to obtain the vote in Massachusetts prior to the 19th Amendment.
