Straight-laced Girls, Uptight Ladies & Loose Women @ Room A

Join us at the Library as Kathy Wilson returns! In the first program of her series on 19th-century women’s history, Kathy 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!
