Celebrate Women's History Month with New Images in Flickr

March is Women's History Month and the State Library is happy to present a new set of images on our Flickr site that celebrates five women politicians from Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Cambridge Women In Politics set digitally recreates an exhibit installed at Cambridge City Hall in the Fall of 2009. The exhibit profiles three former mayors, E. Denise Simmons, Barbara Ackermann and Sheila Russell, and two current Massachusetts legislators, Martha Walz and Alice Wolf. The original exhibit was presented in collaboration with the Office of Mayor E. Denise Simmons and the Massachusetts Caucus of Women Legislators.
