Event Details

Women inducted in the Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame persevered to preserve their culture and ensure that minority groups receive an equal place in society. Celebrate Women's History Month by learning about Connecticut women such as Fidelia Hoscott Fielding, who preserved the Mohegan-Pequot language for future generations, Ann Petry, who gave a voice to black writers, and Maria Sanchez, a strong advocate for the Puerto Rican community and the initiator of bilingual education in Hartford.

Registration is required to attend this IN PERSON event.
