Unmentionable: The Victorian Lady’s Guide to Sex, Marriage, and Manners

with author Therese Oneill

Friday, June 30, 1 pm

Meet the author of this hilarious, scandalously honest (yet never crass) guide to the secrets and difficulties of Victorian womanhood. Her presentation will focus specifically on women on the Oregon Trail, who especially struggled to maintain 19th-century standards of propriety during their rugged trek: how they dealt with their “monthly unwellness”, where they went to the bathroom on the open prairie, and why in the world they would want to make the trip in the first place.
