Celebrating NJ Women at the Hoboken Historical Museum

Celebrating NJ Women at the Hoboken Historical Museum

Everybody knows, there’s nobody like a Jersey girl. The Hoboken Historical Museum has announced that this weekend, a new lecture series on exceptionalΒ  Garden State women will begin streaming online.

The series commemorates the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote in the United States. It kicks off Sunday, September 13th, at 4:00pm.

In addition to streaming, these lectures will allow some limited-capacity live seating at 1301 Hudson Street. In-person seats must be reserved online for coronavirus safety purposes.

The opening talk will be by NYU professor & author Linda Gordon about Dorothea Lange. Lange, a legendary photographer & documentarian—best known for her work during the Depression—was born right in Hoboken in 1895.

The rest of the series is as follows:

  • Sunday 9/13 – Dorothea Lange: A Life Beyond Limits, by NYU Professor Linda Gordon
  • Sunday, 10/4* – The Richest Woman in the World, Hetty Green in the Gilded Age, by Janet Wallach
  • Sunday, 10/18 – Millicent Fenwick, Her Way, by Amy Schapiro
  • Saturday, 11/7 – The Mysterious Death of Mary Rogers, by Amy Gilman Srebnick
  • Sunday, 11/15 – Martha & Caroline Stevens, by Eileen Lynch
  • Sunday, 11/22 – Anne Ryan: Her Art and Life, by Nancy Nikkal
  • Sunday, 12/6 – NJ Women Poets Make History, with readings by 6 NJ poets
  • Sunday, 12/13 – An Interview with Maria Pepe

Thanks to support from the NJ Council for the Humanities, the series is free to all. Those wishing to attend the online streams can RSVP here! All lectures begin at 4:00pm.
