Straight-Laced Girls, Uptight Ladies, & Loose Women

Thursday, September 15, 2022

In this fascinating program on women's history, historian, Kathy Wilson looks at the changing role of American women from colonial times through the Victorian era, including what it means to be “straight-laced and uptight”.  Discover what corsets and gun clubs have in common, how the house took on new importance for our female ancestors, and why a man’s home wasn’t really his castle, but rather his wife’s! This program is free to attend and is open to the public.
