Worcester Women’s Oral History Project Co-Chairpersons, Charlene Martin and Maureen Ryan Doyle, spoke at a recent meeting of the Women’s Information Network (WIN) at the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce. Their address focused on the mission of the Worcester Women’s History Project and the value of women’s history, particularly oral history.
The Women’s Information Network is a dynamic group that advocates and encourages women to take advantage of the opportunities that are currently available to today’s professional women. The goal of WIN is to bring enterprising women together through meetings and special events, thus providing an opportunity for discussion and candid exchanges of ideas.
Following their presentation, Dr. Martin and Ms. Ryan Doyle read excerpts from their upcoming book, Voices of Worcester Women, and answered many questions from members of the audience.
