Leeds University, Brotherton Gallery Exhibition.
An exhibition exploring the contested meanings of paid work performed by women in their own homes. A fusion of portrait photography and cutting edge historical research will be on display.
The display is created by photographer Leonora Saunders and historian Helen McCarthy. Each image re-imagines the life of a woman who laboured for pay in her own home, from the Victorian seamstress and Edwardian chain-maker to the post war childminder and late twentieth century entrepreneur.
The exhibition includes material from the FAN Archive.
Open Wednesday 16th January -Saturday 16th February 2019
Event is FREE
