Lighting the Way: Historic Women of the SouthCoast

Launched in 2018, the New Bedford Whaling Museum project Lighting the Way: Historic Women of SouthCoast explores the historical impact of women from the region. Lighting the Way amplifies history by revealing previously untold stories of vision, determination, and perseverance through profiles on the Lighting the Way website; resources and programs for educators and school groups; walking tours, forums, and other activities; and a self-guided tour. Lighting the Way provides thought-provoking programs that enhance our understanding of history, encourage civic engagement and voter participation, and enrich the cultural life of the SouthCoast.
