Gender to a Tea

Jennifer Daugherty (N.C. Collection Librarian) will discuss “N.C.’s Lady Olga: Navigating Gender and Racial Norms.”

Jane Barnell, who hailed from Wilmington, was sold to a circus at a young age by her mother and would perform as “Lady Olga, the bearded lady” for most of her career. Barnell gained fame in the film Freaks and spent her life defining — and challenging — gender expectations.

Gender to a Tea is a speakers’ series designed to help gender-focused researchers by fielding questions from attendees about the presenters’ ongoing, unpublished research.

The series, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Gender Studies Program, Gender Studies Executive Board, and Harriot College of Arts and Sciences.
