The Price of Womanhood


Art Museums Admission Required

Meet two women separated by time, but not by place. First, engage with Martha Barksdale, first president of the Women's Student Council, formed after 1918 when 24 women were admitted to the first class of William & Mary. How did her experience compare that of Ann Wager, the teacher at Virginia’s first school for African Americans during the American Revolution. Join the two women as they discuss what it means to be female, educated, represented, and equal in Williamsburg. This event has limited seating due to social distancing. Please arrive early to secure a seat.
