Walking tour: Boston Jewish women finding their voices

As Boston’s working women were fighting for rights in the workplace, suffragists were demanding the right to vote.

Both the women’s trade unionism and suffrage movements were led by proud, defiant women who were divided along class lines. It wouldn’t be until the early 20th century that suffragists and non-native working women would realize that to achieve their goals, they would need to unite.

Tours are rain or shine! Remember to wear comfortable shoes.
