What do you know about the rich history of female lighthouse keepers on the Great Lakes? Celebrate Women's History Month with us by learning about some of the women who kept those lighthouses running, defying the gender expectations of their time to serve the sailing communities on Lakes Huron, Michigan, and Superior, as well as on the Detroit River!
Patricia Majher is author of "Ladies of the Lights: Michigan Women in the U.S. Lighthouse Service," the former editor of Michigan History magazine, and a museum professional. She will share the stories of some of these lighthouse keepers and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
