Every Path Laid Open: Women of Concord and the Quest for Equality

May 07, 2021 — November 07, 2021


Every Path Laid Open: Women of Concord and the Quest for Equality includes rare artifacts from the collection that tell the story of Concord women of the past – some famous and some almost invisible. Each portrait, needlework, or piece of historic clothing, carefully preserved by succeeding generations and now by the Concord Museum, makes it possible to create meaning from the lives of ordinary citizens as well as prominent residents.  There is also a special media component in the exhibition celebrating today’s women of Concord – from educators to entrepreneurs, firefighters to farmers, and artists to activists. The title of the exhibition comes from a compelling quote by 19th century feminist Margaret Fuller describing the ultimate goal of her fellow advocates for women’s suffrage: “We would have every path laid open to woman as freely as to man.”

Concord Museum has many wonderful programs and forums inspired by the Every Path Laid Open exhibition. Be sure to check the Museum’s calendar for more information.

Please consider making a gift to support our efforts to explore the visionary reformers of Concord’s past, engage in conversations with contemporary women leaders, and inspire a new generation in the quest for gender equality.
