The Not So Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife

Perhaps women and girls need to be reminded of how far we’ve come in order to see how far we still can go. Discover what life was really like for New England’s colonial women – because we’ve always been curious about: menstruation, sex & birth control, childbirth, sickness & medicine.

The Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife not only makes audience members laugh and grimace - it also honors our foremothers. It’s not about quilting bees and spinning wheels - it’s an interactive presentation about the little-known issues faced by New England’s colonial women.
