"The Evolution of Underwear and our 19th Ammendment"
Suffragettes in Corselettes: The Evolution of Underwear & our 19th Amendment

This August marks the 100th anniversary of women obtaining the right to vote in the United States. What did underwear have to do with it? For centuries, women have allowed themselves to be squeezed, twisted, and squished to conform to desired shapes, but in the 1910s they began to see themselves differently. Others saw them differently. They stopped struggling to achieve the hourglass figure with the tiny waist and were able to breathe and move more freely. What did they do with that new freedom? They took to the streets and lobbied for the right to vote. Join the Brewster Historical Society to celebrate the passage of the 19th amendment with a funny and frank virtual presentation by the Grounded Goodwife’s Velya Jancz-Urban and Ehris Urban that honors our foremothers’ journeys. Zoom presentation Thursday, AUGUST 13 at 7 pm. Tickets $10 members/$12 non- members. Visit www.brewsterhistoricalsociety .org for more information or to purchase tickets. Tickets limited so order soon!
