Long before they won the right to vote, early American women, like Abigail Adams, harnessed the power of economic citizenship and made their mark on the world as buyers and consumers. Abigail learned to appraise goods, to act as a retailer, and to develop a critical eye for popular fashion. This exhibit shows how Abigail and a generation of women carved out vital public roles and helped steer the early American economy.

This is the first of four rotating exhibits on display at the Massachusetts Historical Society in 2019. Style & Substance will be on display from February 1 through March 31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Sara Georgini, MHS

There will be a pre-talk reception at 5:30.

Reflecting on his past, President John Adams mused that it was religion that had shaped his family's fortunes and young America's future. Globetrotters who chronicled their religious journeys extensively, the Adamses developed a cosmopolitan Christianity that blended discovery and criticism, faith and doubt. From Abigail Adams’s use of religion during the Revolution to her Victorian descendants’ journeys through foreign faiths, Sara Georgini demonstrates how pivotal Christianity--as the different generations understood it--was in shaping the family's decisions, great and small.

There is a $10 per person fee (no charge for MHS Fellows and Members or EBT cardholders). To register, visit the MHS calendar.
