Emergence of the New Woman: First Ladies of the United States
Fri, April 28, 2017, 10:45 AM – 12:00 PM EDT
A SPECIAL LECTURE SERIES
Prior to the Civil War, the First Lady was America’s chief wife, head hostess, and leading fashion plate.
The role evolved into a powerful political institution complete with a staff and resources rivaling those of key presidential advisors.
Join us to learn the impact of these women on our social and political lives.
Presenter Barbara Falini taught Economics and Government for more than 42 years.
The series begins April 7th and runs five Fridays from 10:45 am until 12:00 pm. (April 7, 21, 28 and May 5, 12)
Hosted by Daylesford Crossing, attendees are invited to stay for lunch and conversation as our guests.
Call 610-640-4000 for lecture and lunch reservations. Let us know if you need transportation.
A $30 fee (for the entire series) is payable to Widener University at the first lecture.
