South Street Seaport Museum Announces Free Women’s History Month Workshop Her-story in Motion

from Emily MT

Join the Seaport Museum this March to celebrate Women’s History Month! Most Saturdays and Sundays, from February 24 – March 31, the Seaport Museum is offering a free family activity with Pay What You Wish General Admission to honor the lives and work of historic women. Stop by anytime from 11am–4:30pm to participate in this timely and enjoyable experience.

The Seaport Museum is celebrating with visitors of all ages by sharing the her-story of notable women from around the South Street Seaport Historic District and inviting you to create your own movable craft inspired by these women. Learn about the lives of several women and then bring them to life by coloring and assembling your own paper doll.

A few of the women featured in this activity are Emily Roebling, who assumed chief engineering duties for the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge; Kate Walker, the devoted keeper of Robbins Reef Lighthouse for over 30 years; Maritcha Rémond Lyons, an educator and civil rights activist who testified for her right to education and became the first Black student to graduate from Providence High School, and more!
