Massachusetts Women in Politics
The images in this set digitally represent the exhibit installed in the State Library of Massachusetts during the winter of 2010. The exhibit profiles sixteen women politicians who have worked in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in such roles as Mayor, Representative, Senator, and Lieutenant Governor.

The State Library holds the legislative papers of fifteen women legislators, occupying approximately 200 linear feet. These materials are located in the Special Collections Department in Room 55 of the Massachusetts State House.

This exhibit was co-presented by the State Library of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Caucus of Women Legislators. Thanks to Bruce DiLoreto and Mark Kasianowicz for many of the photos and to Marietta Carr for her research.
