The LexSeeHer FOUNDERS QuilT - 2021
LexSeeHer proudly presents our Digital Founders Quilt to honor the collaborative spirit and strength of Lexington women across time. It may take time for this page to load. For a closer look, hover your mouse or cursor over the quilt. It may appear blurry while the high resolution photograph loads onto the page. You should then be able to view each square.
We thank those who participated in our five month open nomination period for bringing extraordinary women to our attention.
As political leaders, athletes, educators, activists, architects, and more, spectacular women have improved our community and country.
Thank you to the many "Heroine" donors who accepted our invitation to select a special woman they wished to nominate as an honoree in our Founders Quilt.*
LexSeeHer selected seven exceptional nominees (including historical and contemporary figures) to honor in our first visibility project:
Anne Grady, Ann Solomon Burdoo, Celeste Freeman, Elizabeth "Bettie" Hewitt Clarke, Ellen Dana, Janet Haas and Sarah Pillsbury Harkness. In addition, we selected members of the Wellington family to honor in a shared square that represents the way generations of women in one family passed along a commitment to work for community and social justice, from abolition to woman suffrage. Each honoree is inspirational and has made significant contributions to Lexington.
To see names of all honorees, explore our Founders Quilt Guide. Some have included information about an honoree. We will continue to add information received. To add information about an honoree, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
