Virtual Lecture
Women’s History Month:
Fierce and Feminine

March 24 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

Fierce and Feminine: Female Pirates That Roamed the Seven Seas 

Advance registration is required.

Presenter: Wisteria Perry, Museum interpretation and community outreach manager

About the presentation:
Piracy has a long history since ancient times. Some joined due to necessity, others came seeking revenge, treasure, and fame. And piracy wasn’t limited to men.

Come hear the fascinating stories behind some of history’s most famous and lesser-known pirate queens who ruled the seas. This program is part of the Museum’s recognition of Women’s History Month, which the US has celebrated every March since 1987.

Attendees are welcome to send comments or questions to Wisteria, and she will answer them following her presentation.
