It is the past which holds the clues to the subordinate position of women. The earlier age of industrial society, for example, can help us understand why women’s work has been evaluated as worth less than men’s. More importantly, as Sheila Rowbotham asserts, “if a woman’s role can be shown to be socially constructed within a specific historical context, rather than natural and universal, it can be challenged and open to change.” This half day workshop will begin by exploring women’s position today and ask, has this always been the case?
Note: the dept entrance is opposite Roedale Road and the Learning Resource Centre is just inside the gates on the right)
