Corsets, Croquet, and Crusades: Kentucky Women’s Lives, 1889-1914

The turn of the 20th century was a time of change for American women. The technological advances, economic development and social turmoil that seized the nation affected every facet of life – from the clothing people wore to the causes they embraced. This exhibit celebrates the joys, hardships and challenges Kentucky women faced during this exciting era, whether they conformed to traditional women’s roles or challenged them. It introduces Kentucky’s leading female reformers and explores emerging and diverging lifestyles.
