Herstory Unsanitized: The Not-So-Golden Life of the Gilded Age Wife

March 30, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

For Women’s History Month, we’re excited to welcome Ehris Urban and Velya Jancz-Urban, who make up The Grounded Goodwife,  for “The Not-So-Golden Life of the Gilded Age Wife.”
Laugh, grimace, and honor our foremothers’ journeys while learning about the little-known issues faced by women during America’s Gilded Age.

“Although Gilded Age women in the upper and lower classes had many differences, they had one similarity – women were viewed as second best to men, and were expected to be content with this role in society.”

This unique presentation is offered by Ehris Urban (herbalist, daughter) and Velya Jancz-Urban (historian, mother) who believe healing comes from nature, history, and within. The duo offer unique holistic/historic workshops, presentations, and events at a variety of venues, as well as at their colonial home.

$8 for OHA Members, $10 for non-members.
