Readington Museums Lecture: Colonial Midwifery
Aug 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Think women were passive bystanders in the seventeenth- and the eighteenth-century medical world? Think again!

 

Come and find out as Janine Quimby tells how midwives carved out their own space in a profession (and world!) dominated by men, succumbed to and escaped persecution, appealed to writers, and ultimately paved the way for contemporary midwifery practices.
