Event Description

In lieu of our annual holiday social, the MSBA Immigration Law Section is proud to offer this truly unique virtual tour experience to its members. Guests will interact with experts and educators, as they are guided through the recreated spaces of the historic tenement buildings of New York and the lives of the families who lived there.

Contraceptives and Controversies
Delve into the history of birth control from the 1870s into the 1930s. During this 60-year period contraceptives go from being legal and accessible to being sold in underground markets leading to dangerous choices for those looking to limit their fertility, then legal again opening the market for research and innovation eventually leading to the birth control pill. We will trace the whirlwind history of contraceptives through the lives of two women who lived in 97 Orchard: Caroline Schneider--a German immigrant who ran a Lager Bier saloon with her husband in the building, and Rosaria Baldizzi—an Italian immigrant who raised two children with her husband during the Great Depression. Through their lives we will consider the choices available to them and interrogate influential people who impacted their reproductive choices.
