Domesticity and Resistance:  Women and Activism in Early Cold War Pacific Palisades


Wednesday, May 2, 2018, at 7 P.M.

Theatre Palisades, 941 Temescal Canyon Road, Pacific Palisades


The Pacific Palisades Historical Society is pleased to invite you to the Inaugural Lorraine Oshins Lecture Series.


Lorraine was an active member of the PPHS Board and served as President from 2001-2003.

This annual lecture series is being made possible by a generous donation from the family of Lorraine Oshins.


We are pleased to celebrate Lorraine’s dedication to teaching, conservation, and women’s issues by inviting special guest speaker, Janet Brodie, Professor of History, Claremont Graduate University.

Professor Brodie has written on U.S. women’s history and, more recently, nuclear history and secrecy. She is currently completing a book about the Trinity Atomic Bomb Test Site—where the first atomic bomb was tested in 1945. The book analyzes how the site became a national historical landmark. She has also written on the secrecy surrounding the radiation from the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs.

Professor Brodie has a Ph.D. in history from the University of Chicago and a B.A. in history from the University of California, Berkeley. She has lived in Pacific Palisades since 1980 in a house built by her parents-in-law in 1953.


Public invited.  Admission is free. 

Free street parking on Temescal Canyon Road.
