2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment and the passage of rights for women to vote. Duxbury’s own suffragist, Judith Winsor McLauthlin Smith, is buried in Mayflower Cemetery on Tremont Street, Duxbury. Judith Winsor Smith lived to be 100 years old and lived just long enough to cast her first ballot in 1920, after working a lifetime for reform.

The Duxbury Rural & Historical Society is working with a number of partners to create a commemorative event to honor Winsor and others like her who worked to establish women’s right to vote and equal rights, in general.

Our generous partners include Massachusetts State Representative Josh Cutler, the Duxbury Free Library, and the First Parish Church in Duxbury.
