American History (After Hours): Women in WWI

To mark the centennial of the United States’ entry into World War I, American History (After Hours) is dedicating an evening to the women of WWI and their lasting impact.

The Great War was a pivotal time in world history that was also a pivotal moment for women’s history as droves of American women donned uniforms, volunteered, or worked in the military and civilian organizations during the Great War. At home and abroad, these fearless, intelligent, and talented ladies pushed the boundaries of traditional roles and expectations of women and their actions ultimately helped pave the way for women’s suffrage. 

Join the Smithsonian National Museum of American History for a special American History (After Hours) as they spend the evening exploring the expanding roles of women, the continued limitations they had to work within, and the lasting results of their efforts. Cotton & Reed will be setting up an English canteen-inspired tasting station with Rum tastings, too!

Tickets include food and drink and access to all activities for the evening. This is a 21+ event.
