Redefining Women’s Work at the New Haven Museum

New Haven, CT, March 7, 2013—On Wednesday, March 13 at 6:30 pm, the New Haven Museum continues to celebrate Women’s History Month, hosting the Junior League of Greater New Haven for a community conversation exploring the flowering of women’s philanthropy in New Haven in the 1920s. Led by members of the Junior League of Greater New Haven, the conversation will cover what Junior League members and their mothers were involved in as well as how their League experience affected their approach to community service. Find out which organizations that were founded in the 1920s are still around 90 years later! Refreshments will be served. Admission is free and open to the public.

Founded in 1923, the Junior League of Greater New Haven is celebrating its 90th Anniversary in 2013. As a not-for-profit women’s volunteer organization, the Junior League has sought to effect positive change in the Greater New Haven community by promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and supporting the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

The New Haven Museum, founded in 1862 as the New Haven Colony Historical Society, is located in downtown New Haven at 114 Whitney Avenue. The Museum is currently celebrating 150 years of collecting, preserving and interpreting the history and heritage of Greater New Haven.
