Glenview-Peerless Speaker Series to Present ‘Women Who Dared’

The Glenview Mansion and Peerless Rockville Speaker Series marks Women’s History Month in March with “Women Who Dared: Pioneering Rockville Mother and Daughter,” at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 9 at Glenview Mansion at Rockville Civic Center Park.

Hear the inspirational stories of Clara Finley and her daughter Bliss Finley, Rockville residents who did not let the restrictions placed on women by late 19th- and early 20th-century society hold them back. Clara was a divorced mother with a young child who attended medical school and became a pioneering doctor and supporter of women’s rights and childhood education. Bliss was prominently featured in society columns as a young woman. As she matured, she used her connections to help organize and inspire working women to stand up for the right to vote.

The program is free but registration is required. Register at
or by using course #23559 at
