Grounded Goodwives Series #2

By popular demand, Ehris Urban & Velya Jancz-Urban, the mother/daughter duo known as the Grounded Goodwives, return to Atwater Memorial Library! (Virtually!)

The first historical traces of makeup on record can be found in cave paintings of Paleolithic women with portions of their body colored in reddish-brown tones. In ancient Egypt, women wore makeup as a marker of wealth believed to appeal to the gods. Queen Victoria declared makeup to be vulgar!

For some women, makeup in something that should always be applied before leaving the house, and for others, it’s unnecessary and offensive. The next time you pop on your magnetic mink fake eyelash strips, think about all that women have gone through in order to give you the freedom to choose.

Registration Required! View the Zoom Livestream from home, or, view the livestream in the Atwater Memorial Library’s Community Room.
