Suffragettes in Corselettes: The Evolution of Underwear & Our 19th Amendment An online Zoom program Wednesday, October 28 at 6:30 p.m.

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.This program is presented by Ehris Urban and Velya Jancz Urban of Grounded Goodwife.
Join us on Zoom for a fun evening learning about women’s history and celebrating the centennial of the passage of the 19th Amendment!
