LLLS: Charitable Ladies: Women’s Benevolent Work and Women’s “Sphere” in Nineteenth-Century America
GUEST SPEAKER: Dr. Sarah Adelman, Associate Professor, History, Framingham State University
This talk explores how the charitable and reform activities women undertook in nineteenth-century American cities simultaneously were seen as marks of the “true woman” and yet also allowed them to push the boundaries of gender norms that designated the home as women’s “sphere.”
