Lecture; Harriet Hanson Robinson Mill Girl to Malden
8/6/2019

Please join us at 6:30 p.m. for a lecture on the life of Malden resident Harriet Hanson Robinson presented by Allison Horrocks of the Lowell National Historic Park. The program is free and will be held at the Malden Public Library, 36 Salem Street.
    Over the next year, many communities will celebrate the passage and ratification of the 19th Amendment, which extended the right to vote to women in the United States. This talk will explore the life story of Harriet Hanson Robinson, a suffragist and activist who once lived in Malden. While in Lowell, Harriet Robinson contributed to The Lowell Offering, an operatives' magazine. Yet it was during her years in Malden that Robinson became more connected to a wider world of abolitionists, woman's rights advocates, and intellectuals. At 23 Harriet married William Stevens Robinson, a journalist and anti-slavery activist, and moved to Malden. Robinson was the first woman to speak before the Select Committee on Woman Suffrage in Congress. She and her daughter, Harriet Lucy Shattuck, organized the National Women's Suffrage Association of Massachusetts. This talk will put Robinson's life in historical context, providing insight into the broader social movements that surrounded her and the particular challenges she faced as a woman who reinvented herself several times.
