Turn of the Century Women

From My Central Jersey:
Bound Brook Memorial Library, 402 E. High St., will present a program entitled, “Women at the Turn of the Century 1880-1920” at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 4.

At the turn of the century, society’s perception of women was in transition, due to the changes going on in the country. Technology, urbanization and immigration were driving changes in the social and economic status of women.

This presentation will discuss women’s advancement into the professions, arts and business, in addition to how women took the initiative to drive social change and innovative approaches to serious social issues like health, public welfare and suffrage while improving their own position in society.

This program is free and open to the public. Call 732-356-0043 to register.
