Community members celebrate Women’s Equality Day

Women’s Equality Day was celebrated at the Quincy History Museum Sunday afternoon. 

This year’s event featured the legacy of Sarah Atwater Denman, who came to Quincy in 1842.

Iris Nelson, a retired librarian, gave a speech, highlighting Denman’s work for equality in the mid-19th century, as she helped pave the way for women to be involved in the community and have the right to vote. 

"I’m part of Rosie’s Resistance from Quincy University and I just came to learn more about the events that happened around here, and just to learn more about the community and everything that’s happened," Payton Hamilton said. 

The annual event will happen next year on August 26th.
