"Herstory" Unsanitized! The Not-So-Golden Life of the Gilded Age Wife

  • Stonehurst, the Robert Treat Paine Estate 100 Robert Treat Paine Drive Waltham, MA, 02452 United States (map)

On historical TV shows, 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!

Velya Jancz-Urban’s enthusiastic delivery about these engrossing “taboo” subjects is funny and frank. In the dramatic turn-of-the century Great Hall of Stonehurst, laugh, grimace, and honor our foremother’s journeys while learning about the little-known issues faced by women of America’s Gilded Age.

Doors open at 7:00PM. Talk begins at 7:30PM.
Tickets $20 in advance. $25 at the door. Sales will begin in late February.

Sales benefit the Friends of Stonehurst and Friends of the Waltham Public Library. Thank you for your support!
