Gosnell Hall, Whaling Museum, 13 Broad Street

The extraordinary Nantucket Women is a performance highlighting historic Nantucket women through excerpts from personal narratives, letters, and memoirs.

Presented in collaboration with Petticoat Row and the Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce, this program features 15 women who raised large families, managed their households, ran businesses in town and found the time to become involved in the social movements of the dat. These women laid the groundwork for Nantucket women today including Executive Directors, business owners, artists, musicians, government employees, doctors, nurses, teachers and more.
