What Shall We Teach Our Daughters?

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 6:00 PM

Description

Join us for *What Shall We Teach Our Daughters?* Lucy Flower and Saint Mary High Schools' Experiment with Urban Education in Post-Haymarket Chicago.

In 1886, the world was shaken by a violent clash in Haymarket Square between workers and police officers. In 19th-century Chicago, three out of four inhabitants were either born in a foreign country or were children of immigrants. For American-born, Protestant educators and reformers who feared papal-controlled parochial schools, public schools became a panacea to assimilate immigrants and quell urban disorder. Dr. Rima Lunin Schultz, co-editor of Women Building Chicago 1790-1990, will analyze two approaches to educating immigrant girls and reveal surprising conclusions about progressive reformers and Roman Catholic women religious in their respective efforts to equip immigrant women for survival and leadership in the modern world.
