About the Event

Maria van Antwerpen, disguised as a man, enlisted three times as a soldier. Cornelia Gerritse van Bruegel disguised herself as a man in order to marry Elisabeth Boleyn. Princess Maria of Orange had herself depicted in men's clothing. Just three examples of brave women who didn't want to comply with gender roles as they excisted in the 17th century. Join the Mauritshuis Museum educator Vera Bos for a revealing tour!
