VIRTUAL EVENT: Suffragettes in Corselettes -- The Evolution Of Our Underwear & Our 19th Amendment
Saturday, March 13All DayVirtual Event via ZoomWilmington Memorial Library175 Middlesex Ave, Wilmington, MA, 01887
For centuries, women have allowed themselves to be squeezed, twisted, and squished to conform to desired shapes. The history of underwear reveals a lot about women’s changing roles in society – how we perceive ourselves, and how we’re viewed by others. The 1910s saw an end to the hourglass figure with a tiny waist. Women were finally able to breathe and move more freely. Did the demise of tightlacing help women gain the right to vote in 1920? Underwear matters.
Presented by Ehris Urban & Velya Jancz-Urban of The Grounded Goodwife. Their fun and humorous presentations look at history with a new eye by including topics not generally learned in school.
