On August 19, 1893, Connecticut had just passed a law that allowed women to vote in school board elections and three women registered that August Saturday. Emma Hadden Heath of 246 Main Street was first, followed by Achsah Dauchy Kerrigan and Susan Street. Two of the women worked in hat factories - Heath and Kerrigan were hat trimmers, and it is reasonable to assume that Street also worked in the industry.
