“Suffragettes in Corselettes” – a program presented by mother/daughter team – ‘Grounded Goodwife‘. Please join us on ZOOM this month for our monthly April meeting at 7 pm.
For centuries, women have allowed themselves to be squeezed, twisted, and squished to conform to desired shapes. The history of underwear reveals a lot about women’s changing roles in society – how we perceive ourselves, and how we’re viewed by others. The 1910s saw an end to the hourglass figure with a tiny waist. Women were finally able to breathe and move more freely. Did the demise of tightlacing help women gain the right to vote in 1920? Underwear matters.
