Jennie B. Powers: The Woman Who Dares tells the story of a Progressive Era local woman who became a Humane Society agent and one of the first female deputy sheriffs in the country, with jurisdiction in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Vermont. Armed with both a camera and a revolver, she was said to have arrested more men than any other woman in the United States, rescued thousands of animals, and protected countless women and children from domestic violence. A co-production of the Historical Society of Cheshire County and SALT Project, this short documentary explores Powers’ life and legacy, inspiring a hope born of courage in the face of suffering and injustice.
