I absolutely love this!! Too often we tip toe around discussion of women’s health, childbirth, breastfeeding and more. This event, “The Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife”, will be a discussion of all of that and more. Details are per Facebook.
“Binge-watch Vikings, Game of Thrones, or Outlander, and you’ll see people being disemboweled, tortured, and decapitated – but you won’t see anything about menstruation, chamber pots, birth control, breastfeeding, or poopy babies. It’s 2019! Even though Google cars have been invented and women won the vote almost 100 years ago, these “unsanitary” subjects still make people uncomfortable.
Perhaps women need to be reminded of how far we’ve come in order to see how far we still can go. This presentation isn’t about spinning wheels or quilting bees – it explores the engrossing “taboo” subjects omitted from history. Velya Jancz-Urban’s enthusiastic delivery is funny and frank. Join us at the Salem Witch Museum on Wednesday, October 7th as we laugh, grimace, and honor our foremother’s journeys while learning about the little-known issues faced by New England’s colonial women. Tickets will be $10 at the door!”
This event takes place on October 7, 2020 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Salem Witch Museum, 19 1/2 Washington Sq. N. Salem, MA 01970. Enjoy!! <3
