Women are extinct, everyone's gay, abortion is illegal — and Jason got pregnant. But however unplanned the pregnancy was, nothing could be less expected than the chain of events it would set in motion.
Robert O’Hara’s audacious, hilarious allegory envisions an uncannily familiar future – one where abortion has been universally criminalized and women have gone extinct from centuries of mistreatment. Even the universal homosexuality that’s resulted and man’s new procreative capacity have not stopped them from fucking everything up.
World War II brought Frederick, Maryland-born fashion designer Claire McCardell to a turning point in her career. Already established in the fashion industry but not quite a household name, McCardell was commissioned to design uniforms for the Office of Civil Defense Corps. Using non-rationed materials such as weather balloon cottons, aprons, and mattress ticking, McCardell embraced the opportunity for uniqueness, ultimately leading to the embedded American Look for women.
Maryland schools have had a unique role in the history of segregation and integration, often due to the efforts of pioneering legal activist Thurgood Marshall. Both at the university and K-12 levels, Marylanders have been at the forefront of pushing for equal access to quality public education. Participants will explore case studies in the Passion and Purpose: Voices of Maryland’s Civil Rights Activists exhibition, and model historical investigation for students using primary source collections from the H. Furlong Baldwin Library.
