‘A Woman’s Place’ exhibit reception
January 16, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Join the University Libraries to celebrate the exhibit A Woman’s Place: Women and Work. The event is free and open to all, but reservations are requested.
About the exhibit
The stories of women as workers are as complex, varied, and engaging as the women themselves. Whether their work is paid or unpaid, by choice or by necessity, a path to freedom or a system of exploitation, the idea of “women in the workplace” has embodied many of society’s greatest hopes and fears about what it means to be a woman.
Visit the contentious battleground of women in the workforce and discover the laborers, pioneers, troublemakers, and reformers documented across the Archives and Special Collections and discover what “women’s work” truly embodies.
