The Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame will be on display in the Luchsinger Gallery at Greenwich Academy from Wednesday through Nov. 15. The traveling exhibit showcases Connecticut women who have made outstanding contributions to society.
According to Mary Lou Evans, the school's director of communication, some of the women honored include Alice Paul, Ella Grasso, Harriet Beecher Stowe and Helen Keller. Each of these women has played a role in shaping our country and exemplifies what women stand for. The exhibit will reinforce GA's motto of "Toward the Building of Character." GA is one of the oldest girls' school in the state and the sixth oldest in the country.
The gallery will host 35 black and white portraits with a biography of each woman. It will feature women of the past and present who have broken new ground or leaders who have triumphed over adversity. The portrait exhibit began in 1994 at the Wadsworth Athenaeum in Hartford.
