Voting Down the Rose – 

Florence Books Whitehouse and 

Maine’s Fight for Women’s Suffrage

The Boothbay region’s involvement with the women’s suffrage movement runs deep. The Boothbay Region Historical Society’s collections include a 1917 petition for women’s suffrage, signed by hundreds of local women. In fact, our museum was previously the home of Elizabeth Reed, who was active in the movement. She was no doubt inspired by the work of Florence Brooks Whitehouse, who summered on Squirrel Island.

Join Maine Author Anne B. Gass on Zoom as she shares the inspiring story of her great-grandmother.

This is a virtual presentation only. Pre-registration is required to access the Zoom link. A link to the recording will also be sent after the event to those who register.
