About this event

The 14th annual Speak for Thyself Awards will recognize exceptional women who, in the spirit of Mayflower Passenger Priscilla Mullins Alden, have have been pioneers, advocates, and leaders and have promoted extraordinary outcomes by speaking up on behalf of themselves and others. This year's awards will honor the Executive Director of Pilgrim Hall Museum Donna Curtin; Susan B. Anthony expert Mary Huth; actor and public historian Lynne McKenney Lydick; and President of Duxbury 2020 Jayne Talmage O'Farrell.
