Historical exhibit celebrates Tri-City women and their work
Submitted By Kelsey Camello
In American society women have traditionally been in the shadow of men, and yet women too have always worked and supported themselves and their families. Women of the Tri-City area have worked on farms, in industry, in business and bore and raised their families. They have always been an integral and important part of society.
History applauds just a few of the many women who have formed the backbone of society. The well-known names are touted over and over again, yet the work of everyday continues, often unnoticed. Opening on Friday, April 8, the exhibit ÒCelebrating Tri-City Women and their Work,Ó highlights some of these unsung heroes. Come and visit the museum and learn about exceptional women in Tri-City history, such as the women who worked the line at the James Graham Manufacturing Co. in Newark, producing airplane parts for the war effort in the 1940s.
The Washington Township Museum of Local History not only invites visitors to this exhibit, but also asks for citizens to submit their stories about women and their work Ð mothers, grandmothers, friends, and acquaintances. To submit stories or for additional information, please visit the museum at 190 Anza Street in Fremont or the website at www.museumoflocalhistory.org
