In a continued celebration of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, Beaches Museum is proud to present our new history exhibit: Breaking Ground: Beyond Bathing Beauties.
The popular image of beach women as bathing beauties only hints at the diverse lives of women at the beaches. From the first settlers to women of today, this exhibit provides the opportunity to explore the many dynamic roles of women as proprietors, laundresses, civic leaders and more.
The beaches were a rare opportunity for women to have careers, shape society and break boundaries. Join us in celebrating the women that shaped our community.
Two companion events are planned with this exhibit. The first, on November 15, is a Cemetery Tour exploring the H. Warren Smith Cemetery with history detective Johnny Woodhouse as he discusses the well-known women interred in the cemetery. The second, which will take place on January 30, will be a Story Tellers event with the groundbreaking female mayors of the Beaches, past and present. The Mayors will discuss their service to the community and the stories behind their motivation to run for office. Learn what it takes to not only survive, but thrive as a female leader at the Beaches.
Breaking Ground: Beyond Bathing Beauties is sponsored by Florida Women’s Law Group, the Rotary Club of Ponte Vedra and Chao Framing.
