Lunchtime Lecture: Women's Intellectual Labor and Domestic Authority in the Antebellum Home

Jun 28th 2024 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

Bring your lunch and enjoy a program at the Equal Rights Heritage Center as the SHM continues this popular series. University of Rochester scholar Sarabeth Rambold explores how, in the decades between the American Revolution and the Civil War, work moved outside the family home leading to “separate spheres” of gendered influence. As Rambold argues, the “domestic sphere” of women became the center of female authority and cultural creation.

This event is free and open to the public.
