About this Event In just over 20 years, American women went from wearing corsets, heavy skirts, and layers of petticoats to donning pants and knee-length dresses. What sparked this major change in fashion? The role of clothing – and the lengths to which women would go to defend their choices – is explored in this new exhibit. Learn more about the social changes that prompted these fashion changes, and what that meant for the women’s rights movement throughout the 20th century.Find out more »
