21 Outstanding Croton Women

To celebrate Women’s History Month, Cornelia Cotton will tell the stories of 21 outstanding Croton women, starting with glittering opera star Lillian Nordica, and ending with another world famous singer, Jessye Norman. In between we will learn about a great poet, famous actresses of stage and screen, brave fighters for women’s rights, and Elizabeth Duncan, who directed her sister Isadora’s first school in America here in Croton, and other women who made major contributions to the world—and to our village, adding to its luster.
