Bad, Rad, and Boho Women of the Village:
A Women’s History Month Lecture by Kathleen Hulser
Unruly women readily found a berth in the Bohemian Village, allowing them to pioneer new politics, lifestyles, and aesthetics. What factors in the large scale of the city and the small scale of the neighborhood made the Village so welcoming? What role did DIY educational and social networks play in knitting these women together and making their ideas take fire? How did mavericks such as Emma Goldman, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, Elizabeth Irwin, Henrietta Rodman, Dorothy Day, Mabel Dodge, Louise Bryant, and later Lorraine Hansberry and Angela Davis find each other and found communities of dissent? Independent public historian Kathleen Hulser will explore the answers to these questions as a celebration of neighborhood dynamics and women’s history.
