Trivia Week 6
Today no one questions that women can own what they want. But in 1847 it was different. Why weren’t married women allowed to own their own clothing or even their garden vegetables?
There was legislation that said a married woman’s husband owned everything of hers.
In 1848 women were not allowed to own:
- Their clothing
- The land they lived on
- The house they lived in
- Their garden vegetables
- 2 passes to the Michigan Theatre plus 2 concessions passes for $5.
- AND, donated by Friends of the Carnegie Library, the book: “A Century of Women The Most Influential events in 20th Century Women’s History”: by Deborah Felder.
