Women’s History

Facilitators Ali Ghanimi and Sue Hadfield
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 12 week module will begin by exploring women’s position today and ask, has this always been the case? Throughout the module, participants will be encouraged to undertake some research in areas that interest them using local history archives. We may also organise some walks and day trips to explore sites associated with inspiring and notable women in Sussex.
