Suffragettes in Corselettes- The Evolution of Underwear and Our 19th Amendment

Thursday March 19, 2020
6:30 PM until 7:30 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.
