All Work and No Pay: A History of Women's Invisible Labor
From: 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM
Ideally timed for Womens History Month, this exhibit at the National Museum of American History will highlight womens work in the home and the corresponding issue of unwaged labor. Costumes for domestic work ranging from colonial times to the 1990s will show how women are expected to manage the housework regardless of class, race, culture or community. Visitors will be able to learn the inequality and unfairness of this outdated societal assumption through artifacts and images.
