Women’s Work during Prohibition by Alison Staudinger, Assoc. Professor of Democracy and Justice, UW Green Bay 6:00PM
Some women were outspoken proponents of Prohibition and some spoke out publicly against Prohibition. Over the course of thirteen ‘dry’ years, some women’s work, and attitudes, changed to match the times.
This lively talk and discussion will focus on the stories of real Wisconsin women and consider how the value of work in the home changed during Prohibition and how it is valued today.
This presentation is brought to you by the Wisconsin Humanities Council and hosted by Sister Bay Historical Society.
