2024 Banner Honorees Are Currently Displayed in Lexington Center!

Since 2021, LexSeeHer has celebrated Lexington women's contributions with Visibility Banners. The 2024 year's theme is "Revolutionary Lexington Women Keep Making History." Thank you to everyone who nominated an important and special woman. There are many women worthy of recognition in every community! 


Collaboration with Lexington Girl Scouts:

Lexington Girl Scout Troops 63054, 67318, 66265 collaborated with LexSeeher to make women's contributions to Lexington, MA visible through a historic art form: the silhouette. This project originated with Troop 66265 from 2020 - 2021, when the girls helped recognize 42 women whose stories were seldom told.

Looking Back: Research and Design

The 2021 Women's Visibility Banners were displayed in Lexington Center. More than 42 amazing women were honored. Women have always made contributions to our community. The Girl Scout - LexSeeHer collaboration made women visible!

The 2021 banners were on view along Massachusetts Avenue from July - October 2021. The 2022 banners were on display at Cary Library from August through September, and a reception for honorees was held on August 17. They were next on view along Massachusetts Avenue for the last week of February and the start of Women's History Month in March 2024.

Girl Scouts checked each banner as they arrived from the printers. Banners are approximately 5' tall. They look much smaller when they are displayed on the lamp posts in Lexington Center!

Each banner features at least two women, one on each side of the banner. Some banners include two women on one side of the banner. One banner represents the Indigenous women who lived on the land now known as Lexington. LexSeeHer seeks to tell many untold stories. Join us!

The art of the silhouette allowed each participant to capture elements of clothing that the honorees wore at specific milestone moments during their lifetime. A hat, hemline or prop can help convey important meaning.

Here, a hat, a book, and a period  style skirt help convey an impression of Alice Cary.

Winter 2021

Members of Girl Scout Troop 66265 visited LexSeeHer's Suffragist Installation in Town Center to learn more about the ways Lexington activists participated in the 70 year struggle to obtain the right to vote.

Scouts also studied the built environment as they prepare designs for 2021 Visibility Banners.
