Ann Fessler's A Girl Like Her
RISD Museum - Chase Center - Metcalf Auditorium
October 8, 2013
A GIRL LIKE HER reveals the hidden history of over a million young women who became pregnant in the 1950s and 60s and were banished to maternity homes to give birth, surrender their children, and return home alone. They were told to keep their secret, move on and forget. But, does a woman forget her child?
