A Quiet Revolt: The Nichols Women, Power, Autonomy, & Politics in the Hub

On Tuesday, March 7th, in a special, after-hours tour at the Nichols House Museum, celebrate Women’s History Month by learning about the history of the Nichols women, their activities in the progressive era social reform movements, and the New Women of Boston around the turn of the 20th century!

Before the women of the progressive era could champion their causes for equality, they were, first, daughters of Victorian women who were themselves grappling with their own ideas on the constraints of womanhood. It is through this lens that the more celebrated New Woman of the progressive era is exposed as the progeny of a movement that rose quietly from the confines of Victorian womanhood.

Presented in Partnership with the Old North Church & Historic Site, tours will be led by Nichols family researchers, followed by an open discussion with the Nichols House Museum curatorial staff.  Light refreshments will be served.

Date: Tuesday, March 7, 2017
Time:  6pm – 8pm
Location: Nichols House Museum                      
55 Mount Vernon St.
Boston, MA 02108
