The Second Line of Defense: American Women and World War I
How did American women help the United States mobilize for the largest military endeavor in the nation’s history? Join us as we welcome Dr. Lynn Dumenil, Robert Glass Cleland Professor of American History Emerita at Occidental College, as she explores World War I’s surprising impact on women and, in turn, the impact of women on the war. Tracing the experiences of a diverse group of women, including African Americans, dissidents and pacifists, Dumenil considers the challenges and opportunities they encountered, considering the broader context of the social, cultural and political history of the era. Presented in partnership with the National Archives at Kansas City. Reception begins at 6 p.m. Book sales available before and after lecture. FREE with RSVP | J.C. Nichols Auditorium and Lobby
