"I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman." — Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own
And so it is with societies' telling of history with women's integral role often ignored or taken credit for. Not any more.
We are teaming up with the New-York Historical Society's new Center for Women’s History to bring you an elegant evening of drinks, art and history with women in the spotlight.
Each ticket includes access to the eye-opening, in-depth exhibition Hotbed, with keynote by Valerie Paley, Director of the Center for Women’s History and Co-Curator, Sarah Gordon.
"Hotbed explores the vibrant political and artistic scene of Greenwich Village in the early 20th century, where men and women joined forces across the boundaries of class and race to fight for a better world. At the heart of the downtown radicals’ crusade lay women’s rights: to control their own bodies, to do meaningful work, and above all, to vote. Immersive installations and more than 100 artifacts and images—drawn from New-York Historical’s archives and several private collections—bring to life the bohemian scene and its energetic activist spirit."
