"We Fight For Roses, Too" Exhibit at Otis Library
March 16 - March 30, 2019
Otis Library will host the exhibit “We Fight For Roses, Too” in the Millie and Martin Shapiro Community Room. This exhibit, on loan from the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame, is dedicated to the stories, struggles, and achievements of women who have shaped the culture and society of Connecticut and the nation.
The title of the exhibit is from the well-known women’s labor song “Bread and Roses.” Small art and love and beauty their drudging spirits knew. Yes, it is bread we fight for, but we fight for roses, too.
