About The Event

Join us at The Lyceum, Alexandria’s History Museum (201 South Washington Street) for Women’s History Month and three lectures about women’s contributions to the World War I war effort. Lectures are scheduled for March 1, 15, and 22.

March 22: “Sowing the Seeds of Victory: The Women’s Land Army of America in Virginia and Washington DC, 1917-1920,” by Anna Kiefer. In 1917, the Women’s Land Army of America began recruiting women who would work the land while America’s farmers served in the Great War. 

These girls and women, also known as Farmerettes, shocked American society, as they were paid equally with male farm laborers, worked eight-hour days – and wore pants.All lectures begin at 7:30 p.m. and doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person with a combination ticket for all three lectures is available for $25. As space is limited, reservations are recommended. Tickets can be purchased at shop.alexandria.gov
