18 Sep 2020 to 20 Sep 2020 Once Only Event
In the 19th century, women’s roles were highly defined. They were expected to be pious, pure in heart, mind and body, submissive to their husbands, and domestic – making the home their sole sphere of life – the cult of domesticity.
In March 2020, after two centuries of struggle to change this, all over the world women were forced back into their homes during lockdown. For some, this meant a new confinement to the domestic sphere with little help, along with responsibilities for supervising children’s education, care for ageing parents, worries about partners and finances. For others, new anxieties arose from their professional roles as health workers and teachers – on the frontline of caring.
What has it been like for you in Brisbane? What does it show them about current social expectations of women? Here is your chance to participate in the global conversation on the impacts of COVID 19 on women and girls and the changes they wish to see, in a series of events in the homes of Brisbane women!
