Frances Perkins: The Unsung Hero Behind the New Deal
March 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us at the Stoneham Public Library for The Unsung Heroine Behind the New Deal, an historical portrayal by Lady J. This program describes Frances Perkins’ rocky road to Washington. She was the architect of Social Security, the first female in the US Cabinet, and an object of admiration and contempt from her male colleagues. Frances Perkins was an unstoppable force in advocating safety and justice for working adults, children, and retirees.
Walk with Frances as this Massachusetts native celebrates hard-won victories, ploughs through political quagmires, and finesses gender-related quandaries in her mission to make government an ally of exploited workers, and forgotten retirees. Free admission. No registration required.
Note that this event is in the Marcy Room at the Stoneham Public Library, 431 Main Street, Stoneham,
