Wallingford Public Library welcomes the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame for the presentation Cultivating Confidence, Thursday, October 8 at 6:30 p.m. This interactive multi-media program by the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame showcases some of our state’s most remarkable women and how they overcame obstacles and grew into confident leaders. Attendees will be inspired by the powerful stories of women like Marian Anderson who dealt with racial discrimination, Sophie Tucker who struggled with body image, Dorrit Hoffleit whose own mother considered her dumb because of her gender, and others across many fields.
The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame is an educational outreach organization whose mission is to honor publicly the achievement of Connecticut women, preserve their stories, educate the public and inspire the continued achievements of women and girls. Adolescent girls and young adults and their parents or guardians are encouraged to attend.
