First Wednesdays

“It Was I Who Did It”: Women in the American Revolution

Digital Event
March 2: 7:00 pm

Note: due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this talk will only be offered online, via Zoom. Advance registration is required for this event.

Why were women originally left out of the Revolutionary War narrative, and how did they eventually get written back in? Author Carol Berkin provides a close examination of the vital roles that women played in pre-revolutionary protests and in the revolution itself and describes how their participation helped create a new gender ideology.

About Carol Berkin
