Lighting the Way Votes
Leading up to the 2020 National Election in the United states, "Lighting the Way Votes" asked women living in southcoast Massachusetts to honor the struggle for voting rights by making sure their voices were heard. We asked women to share their reasons for voting and their voting plans, and to encourage others to vote. The "Lighting the Way Votes" photos and videos we received and shared on social media were powerful and helped illuminate the path to the vote. This album includes images sent to us by participants. "Lighting the Way Votes" was supported by the Women's Fund of Southeastern Massachusetts and was part of the New Bedford Whaling Museum initiative "Lighting the Way: Historic Women of the SouthCoast."
