Buffalo, NY – Laurel Thatcher Ulrich - Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History
Tuesday, November 13th at 7 p.m.
Allen Hall Theatre, UB South Campus
"They didn't ask to be remembered," Pulitzer Prize-winning author Laurel Ulrich wrote in 1976 about the pious women of colonial New England. And then she added a phrase that has since gained widespread currency: "Well-behaved women seldom make history." Today those words appear almost everywhere on T-shirts, mugs, bumper stickers, plaques, greeting cards, and more. But what do they really mean? In this engrossing volume, Laurel Ulrich goes far beyond the slogan she inadvertently created and explores what it means to make history.
