Description: Join Old Sturbridge Village as we acknowledge and celebrate extraordinary and everyday women in the early 19th century. Our costumed historians will explore the diverse and unique roles of women through storytelling and performance. Come and learn about 19th-century midwifery, the life of an Irish immigrant, and listen to letters from the abolitionist Grimke Sisters. Visit the historic houses of OSV to learn more about how women ran their households and managed the essential work of childrearing, gardening, cooking, laundry, sewing, and more. Join us in the gardens for talks on Indigenous plants and the role played by women in medicine, and for gardening demonstrations showing how the work of food production was carried by women of the past. Beyond the domestic sphere, we will explore the issues surrounding gender, freedom, and rights all occurring during the 1830s.
