Women We Admire and Why

Ref: C2228700

In the past - and even today - women have been admired primarily for being supportive wives, loving mothers, efficient home-makers and good listeners. Today however, we have come to value the skills and achievements of women across all fields of endeavour. These two sessions will introduce you to some extraordinary women and invite you to reflect on the great changes that have occurred in your lifetime, as well as issues of equality which must still be addressed. You will be invited to share your own list of admirable women if you wish to, and we will discuss some of the issues of gender and cultural inequalities facing society today

Course aim

This course aims to introduce participants to a range of admirable women in different fields. It will address the breadth of women's achievements and the recent shifts to include more coverage and acknowledgement of women in the media.
