(Re)defining women's strength (ISS)

Full Text Sharing


While we celebrate women's achievements and tenacity, this episode closely examines the narratives around women's strength through stories and perspectives from the ISS community. The last two years of the pandemic have shown us what women can do in the face of overwhelming crises. But it's also exposed what was often invisible, like the litany of care work and the expectation that women can 'do it all', balancing their home, career, and personal lives.

In the sixth episode, guests Brenda and Ezinne talk about how women's strength has been conventionally looked at, specifically in care work, using their opinions and personal stories spanning from Mexico to Nigeria. You'll also hear the voices of various MA students who contributed their own stories for this episode.
