Just published: Women's History Initiatives, edited by Dr. Brenda Gael McSweeney, the UNESCO/UNITWIN Network on Gender, Culture and People-Centered Development, at Boston University (Massachusetts, USA)

Women's History Initiatives and Women of Vision: Brighton Allston Women's Heritage Trail Guide showcase the significant and compelling contributions that women have made to the New England community of Brighton Allston over the past three centuries.

The twin publications, prepared by members of the Women's History Group of the Brighton Allston Historical Society (BAHS), Massachusetts, USA, capture the work of historians and researchers focusing on women's achievements and of local activists committed to preserving these remarkable women's legacies to inspire future generations.

BAHS Women's History Group members researched and hosted advocacy events over a period of six years. The first publication documents this journey, while the second is a guide to 16 notable women and women's organizations that have enriched the life and history of this corner of Boston and beyond.

Material at the links below gives a vivid picture of the evolution of these Women's History Initiatives over time. This body of work has also served as a catalyst for similar initiatives in Burkina Faso in West Africa, and in India.

Editors: Dr. William P. Marchione and Dr. Linda Mishkin Print Publication Date: May 2008
