A new exhibition in Dublin is championing the women who cropped up exactly where they shouldn't.
We're in the midst of a time of female solidarity, and we love nothing more in Irish Tatler than hailing our current Irish heroes who are breaking moulds and blazing new trails, especially those breaking long existing career stereotypes. Which is why we were very excited to see that The Little Museum of Dublin is hosting an exhibition showcasing 100 years of women at work, through times when such independence wasn't well received (never mind acceptable in truly make dominated fields). Sponsored by PayPal, Sodexo, CPL, Coca Cola, Diageo and The Irish Times, this exhibition is one proud display of feminism not to be missed.
Having launched last Saturday, the exhibition will be on display until 10th June. It features photos, films and illustrations of women in the workforce from 1918 to 2018. From the understated war-time heroes, career trailblazers and modern women thriving in male dominated industries, this exhibition showcases the unsung female role models of the last century.
At a time when we are working towards closing the gender pay gaps, the profiles of the women featured in the museum highlights how far we have come in terms of career opportunities, as well as the changes and progressions still to come.
