Suffragettes in Corselettes: the Evolution of Underwear & Our 19th Amendment

Join Ehris Urban and Velya Janez-Urban of Grounded Goodwife for this free online program. 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.

Grounded Goodwife is a dynamic mother-daughter duo based out of Woodbury, Connecticut. Visit their website to learn more: https://groundedgoodwife.com/
