 The role of homemaker is one of the most valuable, yet frequently least valued positions in American society. Rich Lives explores the world of 20thcentury homemakers in a stage presentation by Rita Kohn based upon an oral history compiled by Eleanor Arnold. Arnold crafted “Voices of American Homemakers” from interviews with more than 200 women in the mid-20th century. The women interviewed shared their experiences, values and deep feelings about their lives and the changing world they were living. They revealed homemaking as a universal experience distinguished from housekeeping by the caring and love with which it’s done.
Rich Lives is dedicated to Barbara Zimmer and Loukia Finale.

WFYI filmed a live performance, interviewed cast members and created an hour-long program to be aired for the first time on
