On Thursday, March 9 at 6:30 p.m., the Brooklyn Historical Society will present a conversation between Cindy Gallop, founder of IfWeRanTheWorld and MakeLoveNotPorn, and Juie Scelfo, author of The Women Who Made New York, on the topic “Are We There Yet, Sisters? Will We Ever Be?” The discussion will focus on “[p]ower dynamics, double standards, puritanism…are gender disparities still ruling, or even hampering, female lives?” Because of the nature of the content, this event is suggested for adults only. Admission is $10, or $5 for BHS members; purchase tickets here.
If you’re a native of Ireland, or, like me, proud of your Irish heritage, or if you just like, at this time of year, to pretend you’re Irish, this Friday, March 10, starting at 5:00 p.m. BHS will present a Free Friday with free museum admission and the theme “Irish Brooklyn.” It will feature Irish history, Brooklyn whiskey, Brooklyn Brewery beers, and live music.
