Abstract/Description

My poster is about my paper, "Gender Theater: How Women Performed Their Gender Based On Socioeconomic and Racial Expectations." The paper examines how in eighteenth and nineteenth century women were expected to perform in public and private life what it meant to be "a woman". By examining art, criminal records, and firsthand accounts I assert that depending on socioeconomic status and race, the expectations of how to be and what it meant to be "a woman" was impacted in different ways.
