For Women’s History Month, join us on a special virtual tour for an exploration of birth control and childbirth from the 1870s into the 1930s.

We’ll trace the history of women’s reproductive health through the perspectives of two women who lived in 97 Orchard: Caroline Schneider—a German immigrant who helped operate a saloon, and Rosaria Baldizzi—an Italian immigrant who raised two children during the Great Depression. Through their stories, we’ll consider how immigrant women made decisions about contraception and childbirth in the United States and discuss influential movements and figures that impacted their reproductive choices.

Please note: This program will be on Zoom and will not be available on our YouTube channel following the event.
