SHREWSBURY – Rep. Hannah Kane (R-Shrewsbury) and the Women’s Rights History Trail Task Force will be hosting a listening session on Oct. 3 at the Shrewsbury Public Library.
The session will take place from 3 to 5 p.m. in the library’s meeting room.
Attendees will be able to hear the recommendations for the sites of the proposed cross-commonwealth trail, celebrating the fight for women’s rights and suffrage in Massachusetts.
Kane co-filed the bill that established the Women’s Rights History Trail program and created the task force along with Rep. Danielle Gregoire (D-Marlborough) and former Rep. Carolyn Dykema (D-Holliston).
“The Women’s Rights History Trail will highlight the important contributions women have made to the Commonwealth and to the U.S.,” Kane said. “Recognizing women’s accomplishments will help preserve Massachusetts history, educate the public and promote tourism throughout the state.”
The listening sessions will provide an opportunity for the public to participate in identifying potential sites on the trail. The task force will then submit a list of the recommended sites to the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism.
