How Secretaries Changed the 20th-Century Office: Design, Image, and Culture
February 6 - May 23, 2010
During the 20th century women poured into offices all over the U.S. to work as "typewriter girls," stenographers, and secretaries. New spaces, furnishings, and clothing emerged to meet their needs, while popular culture glamorized them. The exhibition explores transformations in the workplace and women's lives and features office equipment, furniture, fashions, magazines, and much more.
