Well Behaved Women Seldom Make History
Program by Lauren Gianino
You’ve probably heard the well behaved women seldom make history. Have you ever thought about what characteristics woman share that may make them strong leaders? What do you want the history books to say about you and your legacy?
Throughout the course of Portsmouth’s rich history, the city has been home to many notable women who have paved the path for today’s female business and community leaders. Whether it’s a small story shared with your daughter next time you’re downtown, or a larger message instilled on to those you surround yourself with in your business, there is always something to be learned by those that came before us. Lauren Gianino works at Discovery Portsmouth providing walking tours of the city of Portsmouth and greater Seacoast region. She specializes in providing her patrons with a guide of the city’s history, including prominent female figures of Portsmouth past and their mark on our community.
Take some time to learn and appreciate these notable female leaders of the Seacoast region by joining Seacoast’s Woman Network’s October meeting where Lauren will be sharing some of her knowledge on the attributes shared by these women which has stood the test of time.
Lauren Gianino is a native New Englander who has resided in the Seacoast since 1982. From her first visit as a child to a historical museum she was intrigued by the people and events that shaped our nation’s history. She loves to connect with visitors from all over the world to tell Portsmouth’s most fascinating stories with enthusiasm and humor. As a retired educator she finds sharing those stories is a natural fit for her “second career”. When not guiding tours for Discover Portsmouth and the Moffatt-Ladd House, she is a museum guide at the John Paul Jones House. Lauren is a Music Hall volunteer and enjoys the lively arts scene in the city. She loves spending time outdoors, and of course, traveling to other historic sites and being a tourist!
