Making Her Mark Spotlight: Temperance and Suffrage | Digital Discussion
Discussion led by Dr. Theresa McCulla, Curator in the Division of Work and Industry at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History
Women have long been critical to the production and consumption of alcohol in the United States and throughout the world. Yet as campaigns for temperance and women's suffrage intensified and commingled in the late 1800s and early 1900s U.S., the relationship between women and alcohol changed. Learn more about women-led organizing for temperance, shifts in social mores, and evolving popular culture depictions of women and alcohol during these years and the decades that followed. This program is inspired by the Free Library of Philadelphia's Making Her Mark exhibit, now on view online at www.freelibrary.org/exhibitions
This discussion will be led by Dr. Theresa McCulla, Curator in the Division of Work and Industry at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. Dr. McCulla heads up the American Brewing History Initiative and is interested in how Americans use material and visual culture to define race, ethnicity, and gender, especially in the realm of food and drink.
