Join National Parks of Boston Rangers in an interactive program based on the 1873 Woman's Tea Party meeting.

On December 15, 1873 Boston’s suffragists held a massive suffrage rally in the Great Hall of Faneuil Hall. Leading suffragists, including Lucy Stone, Frederick Douglass, and Mary Livermore, delivered rousing speeches to a crowd of more than three thousand, furthering the suffrage movement in Boston. Join us in Faneuil Hall as we recreate this historic meeting!

This program lasts approximately 30minutes to 1hour in the Great Hall of Faneuil Hall.
