YouTubeConnecticut Women’s Hall of Fame

The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame pays tribute to Enfield native Martha Parsons, the first female business executive in Connecticut to earn her position based on merit. A corporate trailblazer, Parsons was one of the first to learn a new method of shorthand, and she parlayed that traditionally female skill into a position as a corporate officer at a manufacturing giant (Landers, Frary & Clark), entering a sphere of industry once solely reserved for men.
