Thursday! GGRWHC Complicates Traister's Concepts and Parties On!
Hosted by Aquinas College’s Jane Hibbard Idema Women’s Studies Center, we celebrate contemporary and historical women
and our 30th anniversary with State Representative Winnie Brinks, who will honor us with a legislative tribute!
Let us know you’re coming for wine and hors d’oeuvres and scroll down for program details~
Elaborating on ideas from Traister’s book, our presenters will consider "single ladies" from the Grand Rapids past--who they were and what “single” might have meant in terms of personal histories, various support networks, age, race, divorce, and widowhood.
