PSGV: Marking a Trail of Women’s History Through Pennsylvania

October 10 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Historian and author Robyn Youngwill speak about important women in Pennsylvania’s history who have national significance and her journey of installing historical markers across the state for these women. Since 2001, Young has received approval from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission for 21 roadside markers for women’s history. Beginning with a discussion of the first Women’s Rights Convention held in Pennsylvania in 1852 in West Chester, Young will discuss the contributions and lives of the suffragists, doctors, scientists, abolitionists, and artists that she has researched including: Ida Ella Ruth Jones, “the Grandma Moses of Chester County”; the Rev Dr Anna Howard Shaw; Ethel Waters; Dr Ann Preston; Dr Alice Evans; Dr Charlotte Moore Sitterly; Graceanna Lewis; Dr Stephanie Kwolek; and many others. This program consists of a slideshow of women’s history sites and the historical markers that have been installed by Young throughout Pennsylvania. Young’s book, Women in Penn’s Woods: A History of Women in Pennsylvania, will be available for sale at the end of the program.
