This chapter details events in Josephine Roche's life from 1919 to 1927. For several years after the war, Roche remained an itinerant reformer. In part, she moved around a lot because she had not yet situated herself at what she considered a fundamental site for rectifying inequalities; she was as a result never quite satisfied with where she was. In addition, during the decade after the war, unlike any other time in her life, Roche's days were significantly shaped by the family claim. On July 2, 1920, Roche married Edward Hale Bierstadt after a whirlwind romance. Like many other members of the second generation of college-educated women, Roche expected to combine her public career with marriage, and her belief in the possibility of doing so was fueled by her political community.
