Program Description



PNH400 Legacy Project A History of Portsmouth NH in 101 Objects Celebrates Women's History Month with:

"Hey Lady, What’s Your Story?" on Tuesday, May 30, 6:30pm in the Levenson Room.

A History of Portsmouth NH in 101 Objects Speaker Series celebrates Women’s History Month in the context of Portsmouth’s 400th anniversary.

Calling Portsmouth women of all ages! We are blessed by a lineage of amazing women who built our beloved community. Join us for this lively evening where we’ll profile a few women from history and you’ll share your own stories of women’s leadership for the Portsmouth NH 400 archives.

Was there a time you reluctantly raised your hand to lead and were glad you did? Do you know an emerging female leader you’d like to name?

We welcome you to listen to or share stories of female leadership at this special event!
