 Special Event: "Judith Speaks" at the Sargent House Museum. To be held May 15th, 2014; 4-5PM

This will be our third annual "Judith Speaks" event where Gloucester volunteers bring alive the words of Gloucester native, Judith Sargent Murray, one of the nation’s first feminists. As a letter-writer, essayist, poet, novelist and playwright, Judith Sargent Murray wrote tirelessly on behalf of women’s right to an equal education, an equal place in marriage, and a voice in the new republic. The writings she left behind are inspiring, poignant, wry and funny. To volunteer or to learn more, contact Daniel Sargent Weir by clicking.
