Member's Choice: Finding Your Voice: Women and Girls at the Athenæum
Dani Crickman and Judy Gates
Join Children's and Young Adult Services Librarian Dani Crickman and Athenæum docent Judy Gates as they explore the role of women in the Boston Athenaeum from Athena right through the present day. When and how did women get access to the library resources? When did they use their voices to become active in the library itself? What resources focused on women’s empowerment does the Athenaeum have to offer now?
They will also explore ideas about how women and girls can lift up their voices today: practical ideas from voice teachers, advice about how to speak with authority, historical vignettes about women, and book suggestions for young readers.
