    Name: Short Skirts, Oh My! A History of Women's Rights
    Date: November 2, 2019
    Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Join us on Saturday, November 2 at 2:00pm for a program documenting the history of women’s rights in the United States. When Abigail Adams begged her husband to "remember the ladies" in drafting a new code of laws, John wrote back that he "could not but laugh" at her extraordinary suggestion. Less than 150 years later, women were working, voting, and experiencing the first taste of freedoms unheard of just a generation earlier. This lecture by Anne Barrett traces the exciting social and historical milestones in the fight for women's rights. The event will take place in the Woodbury Room of the Jones Library.
