Join us at the Pharmacy Museum for works on the themes of female healthcare and reproductive justice, featuring:

• Rachael Speck • Pinky Bass • Stacey-Robin Johnson • Jinks + Monn • Nonney Oddlokken •

Works will be on display at the following events, as well as those later in May!

Monday May 4th - "Woe is She: Historical Perspectives on Hysterical Remedies"

Join Maypop Herb Shop owners Jen Stovall and Rachel Reeves, as well as current Cachet resident artist Rachel Speck, for a discussion of the patent medicines recommended for women in the 19th century - who marketed/profited off of them, what they contained and what aspects of these curious cultural concoctions are still relevant.

Tuesday May 5th - "Position of Birth: Birth Work in Louisiana Past and Present"

For International Day of the Midwife, join Cachet collaborator Kate Paxton, CNM for a discussion of traditional and professional birth attendants in LA history. This panel will include guest speaker Maida Owens - director of the Louisiana Folklife Program and author of "Waiting for Babies: Lay Midwives in Louisiana."
