Inside Out – Women, Fashion & The Fight for the Vote
December 29, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us for a Gallery Talk with Jennifer Brooks of the Historical Society of Rockland County (HSRC).
When: Tuesday, December 29 at 7pm
What may have been the most significant evolution in American womens fashion happened alongside the ratification of the 19th Amendment as the New Woman proudly took her place in American society, dressed to the nines.
Join HSRC Education Coordinator Jennifer Brooks for a guided gallery talk exploring the HSRC’s Suffrage Centennial exhibition “Inside Out: Women, Fashion & The Fight for the Vote.” Jennifer will highlight the collections items — from women’s gowns and walking suits to fashion and lifestyle accessories — she and co-curator Christine Kowalski chose to tell the story of how the fight for women’s suffrage changed fashion, and how women’s fashion and lives changed in response to suffrage.
