ID#11931 • Shining a local light on women’s struggle for equal rights, writer and educator Nancy Olson will share her knowledge of Clarina Howard Nichols in the Biography Room of the Rockingham Library. Born in Townshend VT in 1810, Clarina Howard Nichols was an American journalist, lobbyist and public speaker involved in the women’s rights movements of the mid-19th century. Her editorials in the Windham County Democrat (published in Brattleboro, VT) addressed many women’s inequality issues without apology. Despite her prominence at that time, she has been largely overlooked by historians until recently.
