Wild Women of Washington, D.C.: A History of Disorderly Conduct from the Ladies of the District

Instructor: Canden Schwantes
Monday, June 19, 7:00–10:00 pm

Get to know the ins and outs of your city through the lens of social history about women. What makes up DC? From neighborhood histories to political moments, take the tour you won’t get on a segue through the national mall. Fiery suffragettes, unconventional first ladies and rebellious socialites–turning up their noses at ladylike behavior, these pioneering women of Washington, D.C., shattered the expectations of a tightly corseted society. From pioneering photographers and newspaperwomen to enterprising madams and soldiers in disguise, author Canden Schwantes introduces readers to the decidedly daring and wild women of the capital.
