Dr. O'Hara lectures on 19th century women's movement

Posted by Fernando.Arzola on Wednesday August 29, 2012

Dr. Lyndell O’Hara, Chair and Professor of the Department of History, lectures and leads walking tour on the history of women in Ocean Grove, NJ. 

An article, “Ocean Grove - A 19th Century Feminist Haven,” highlights Dr. O'Hara's expertise as a scholar and provides her insights on this era.  Between 1870 and 1900, Ocean Grove was both a center of the Holiness movement, which allowed women to develop as religious leaders, and a stronghold of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union.

Dr. O’Hara’s research will be the basis of an exhibit next year at the Historical Society of Ocean Grove.
