Women have long faced challenges in accessing affordable housing. Today, the high cost of housing and rental prices is making it even more challenging for women, and particularly for women in vulnerable communities, including those on low incomes, people with disability and Indigenous Australians.
Join us at the Museum of Sydney for a thought-provoking panel talk that explores women's housing in Australian history. As part of Women’s History Month, this program brings together leading experts in the fields of urban planning, academia and women’s housing to discuss the social, cultural and economic factors that have shaped housing options for women and the impact of these changes on women’s lives.
Learn about the history of women’s housing in Australia, the challenges and opportunities facing women in the housing market today and into the future, and how we can create a more equitable and accessible housing market for all women.
Bookings essential via event website.
