Feminism and Fashion of the Twentieth Century presents feminist history alongside historic garments from The University of Rhode Island’s Historic Textile and Costume Collection. Arranged in chronological order, from the dress reform movement of the 1850s through the grunge movement of the 1990s, the exhibition recognizes the use of fashion and anti-fashion as a means of both oppression and progressive change for women in the United States.
Hear curator Miranda DiCenzo’s introduction to the exhibition and guest speaker, Dr. Jessica Strubel’s perspective on feminist subcultures of the twentieth century.
This exhibition is supported by a Graduate Student Research Grant from The University of Rhode Island's Center for the Humanities.
