Event Details

Wed. May 20, 2020. 7pm. Wyman Tavern Museum, 349 Main Street, Keene. The Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife Binge-watch Vikings, Game of Thrones, or Outlander, and 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. Even though Google cars have been invented and women won the vote almost 100 years ago, these “unsanitary” subjects still make people uncomfortable. The Historical Society of Cheshire County is tackling these and other topics on Wednesday, May 20th at 7pm. This presentation isn’t about spinning wheels or quilting bees – it explores the engrossing “taboo” subjects omitted from history. Ehris Urban and Velya Jancz-Urban’s enthusiastic delivery is funny and frank. Laugh, grimace, and honor our foremother’s journeys while learning about the little-known issues faced by New England’s colonial women. This program is offered free to the public thanks in part to the Putnam Foundation and New Hampshire Humanities.
