The Worcester Women's History Project (WWHP) is a nonprofit all-volunteer educational organization dedicated to celebrating and documenting the contribution of women to the history, social fabric, and culture of Worcester and beyond.
Founded in 1994 to raise awareness of Worcester as the site of the first National Woman's Rights Convention in 1850, the WWHP promotes the research of local women's history, offers educational programming, and sponsors public events.
