"We Cannot be Tame Spectators": Four Centuries of Virginia Women's History by Cynthia A. Kierner

Presenter:

Duration: 
(01:06:45)

From before Jamestown to our own new millennium, women have been central figures in the families and communities of the Old Dominion. In recent decades, historians have also shown that Virginia women—as civic leaders and reformers, genteel ladies and embattled laborers—were also significant historical actors. Commemorate Women’s History Month by celebrating the flourishing field of Virginia women’s history, and by exploring how what we’ve learned about women’s historical experiences can transform our understanding of Virginia history generally.
