    • The Not So Golden Life of the Gilded Age Wife
      Thu, Feb 11, 2021
      6:30pm-7:30pm
      Although Gilded Age women in the upper and lower classes had many differences, they had one similarity: women were viewed as second best to men and were expected to be content with this role in society. Men, for the most part, were clueless, and believed a woman’s body controlled her mind. Men spent an absurd amount of time worrying about: “flooding women,” and “wandering wombs.” Some of the most interesting and important things in history are often times omitted because they’re taboo. The Not-So-Golden Life of the Gilded Age Wife is history “unsanitized.”
      This is a free event.  To register to receive the Zoom link/password, email: marketing@bradfordlibrary.org
