“Fighting for Our Feathered Friends: The Role of Women and Tea in Bird Conservation”


Some visionary women of the 19th and early 20th centuries were instrumental in fighting against the extinction of birds, from the ravenous millinery trade. In this talk, site manager Pamela Malcolm will explore their cause and activities, as well as the beautiful and ruinous use of exotic feathers in turn-of-the-century millinery.
