Thoreau Society Green Silicon Wristband Pewter Bracelet: Well-behaved women rarely make history
Wear your Thoreau Society affiliation proudly on your wrist with this forest green band. A pewter bracelet with an oval pendant that reads "Well behaved women rarely make history." The conservative woman who coined this popular phrase was writing a history book in the 1970s about 19th-century women going about their lives. She wrote about the ways these women were overlooked in our knowledge of history because they weren't dooing anything historians considered extraordinary. This quote by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich is a tribute to the women who didn't try to make history but did. Fine pewter. Made in the U.S.A.
