Growing Up Female in the Eighteenth Century March 24, 2012 9 AM-NOON, Jessie Ball duPont Memorial Library at Stratford Hall Free to Friends of Stratford (FOS)Women of the 18th century were raised in a climate of behavioral and social expectations that were both similar and distinct from those of today. Female behavior was often defined by social parameters and status. As in today’s age, women face particular life situations inherent to their gender. The program will feature members of the George Washington’s Young Friends (GWYFs) portraying women’s lives in the three classes of society common to the 18th century in America: the lower or common sort (or class), the middling sort, and the gentry. Each group of presenters will discuss, dialogue, and converse with the audience in the first person. This lively and insightful program will offer similarities and differences experienced by women over 200 years ago. As different as the 18th century may appear to us today, there are striking similarities women have had to encounter throughout history. The cost of the program is: $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for children,and $3.00 a person for groups over 5. Seating is limited, so call Jon Bachman at 804-493-1972 or email Jon for reservations.
