What is 'women's work'? This exhibition showcases approximately 45 objects to demonstrate how “women’s work” eschews categorization. The items range from a 19th-century mahogany cradle to a 20th-century doctor’s dissection kit to a pinback button with the message “Shirley Chisholm for President.” The exhibition also highlights how women’s work has been essential to American society and is inherently political: Women’s work is everywhere.
