Suffer for Beauty: Revealing Washington Women’s
History through the Study of Undergarments
White River Museum produced a model PowerPoint program designed to be customized
to reflect historic women from different communities and geographic areas. Organizations
can produce and share a quality and highly entertaining program on women’s history.
While exploring the history of women’s underwear and the story of what women have
done to accommodate the changing norms of beauty, the audience will learn
about the lives of women in the past and contributions made by them. Also included
is a teacher’s resource package.
