benzie area women’s history project

See a list of programs and participants since 1983.

For its 35th year, the Benzie Area Women’s History Project (BAWHP) will be collaborating with the Benzie Area Historical Society for a program in May.

On Thursday, May 11, at 7 p.m. at the Mills Community House in Benzonia, we will be collaborating with the Benzie Area Historical Society's Benzonia Academy Lecture Series, presenting a talk by Pamela Toler.

Pamela TolerPamela Toler is a Chicago-based historian who writes for "history buffs and nerdy kids and the general intelligent reader." Last year, she published Heroines of Mercy Street: The Real Nurses of the Civil War, which tells the true stories of the female nurses who inspired the characters of the original PBS drama Mercy Street. But her work covers a broad array of topics, from socialism to Indian peasant farmers to military paintings.

An online interview with Pamela Toler is here.

Programs are wheelchair accessible and hearing assistive technology is available.

The Benzie Area Women's History Project is a committee affiliated with the Benzie Area Historical Society.
