CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- 'Moral Womanhood, Race and the Politics of Nineteenth-Century U.S. Women's History' will be the topic of the next CROW Forum lecture, at noon, Monday, Feb. 3, in Baker Hall Room 161 on the University of Northern Iowa campus.

In the presentation, Barbara Cutter, UNI assistant professor of history, will focus on three types of women who were at the center of public controversy during the nineteenth-century: accused murderesses, women who engaged in sexual activity outside of marriage, and female public lecturers. Cutter will explore the relationship between gender ideology and women's lives in the antebellum United States.

Admission is open to the public and free of charge.

The CROW (Current Research on Women) Forum series is sponsored by UNI's Graduate Program in Women's Studies.

The next program in the CROW Forum series will continue on March 3 with 'Mobilizing for Gender Justice: Implementation and Evaluation of the Mentors in Violence Prevention Model on the UNI Campus.'
