Newnham's 150th Anniversary Lecture Series - Prof Jane Humphries

Professor Jane Humphries CBE (NC 1967) will deliver the third of Newnham's four special 150th Anniversary Lectures, examining women’s unpaid work and the cost of living in England 1260-1860. In today’s age of rising living costs and scrutiny of gender parity, divisions of labour and the burden of caring and domestic work, much of it done by women without remuneration, looking to the past can help us begin to calculate the value of unpaid labour and radically reinvigorate historical estimates of women’s contributions to economic growth and human wellbeing. See the Newnham event page for further information and booking.
