Dates: March 8, 2021
Meets: Mon. from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM
Location: Online Presentation
Enrollment requires a 2020 - 2021 OLLI at MSU Membership
Participants will learn about our nation's progressive era (1890 to 1920) reform movements and the social and economic drivers that caused prostitution to thrive in the early portion of the progressive era and then fail at the end. Alegria will discuss the factors that led women to prostitution, the hierarchical system of the red-light districts and the common juxtaposition of the Chinese community to red-light districts. Participants will come away from the presentation with a deeper understanding of Montana's landscapes of vice and why these restricted districts no longer exist along our downtown streets.
