Perhaps women need to be reminded of how far we've come in order to see how far we still can go. Discover what life was really like for New England's colonial women - because we've always been curious about: menstruation, sex & birth control, childbirth, sickness & medicine. The Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife not only makes audience members laugh and grimace, but it also honors our foremothers. It's not about quilting bees and spinning wheels - it's an interactive presentation about the little-known issues faced by New England's colonial women. Ms. Jancz-Urban has traveled throughout the east coast presenting at libraries, historical societies, women's groups, conferences, universities, book festivals, and women's history month events. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 pm with the talk to begin at 7 pm.
