What Women Talk About When They Talk About Sex: Marriage Discussion Group Special
10th September, 2015 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
One-off Marriage themed special discussion event following our Sexology workshops this summer.
Throughout Spring/Summer 2015 a group of brave and bold women used feminist consciousness raising approaches to discuss the wide terrain of sex and sexuality in the safe and supportive environment of GWL. The outcomes of these discussions are being shared in various forms including extracts included in the forthcoming GWL book Sex Between the Covers. In partnership with the History of Working-Class Marriage in Scotland project we are hosting a one-off Marriage-themed special and want to invite any women who are willing to share their experiences of marriage (whether they are, or have been, married or not, whatever their class, sexuality or ethnicity) in an affirming environment with refreshments and travel expenses (up to £5) provided. The contributions of participants will, confidentially, help build the picture of marriage in Scotland through women’s experience.
More about The History of Working-Class Marriage in Scotland project.
Based at Glasgow University (College of Social Sciences) and in association with the University’s Centre for Gender History, The History of Working-Class Marriage project explores the history of love, courtship and marriage in Scotland, as well as the circumstances in which marriages end, in the period from the civil registration of marriages in 1855 to the introduction of no-fault divorce legislation in 1976. Themes include expectations and experiences of marriage, as well as problems and challenges individuals and couples face. This Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)-funded work will further develop our understanding of modern love, marriage and marital difficulties in Scotland and create a vital resource to be drawn on by academics, practitioners and also by other interested groups and individuals in the future. Only by recognising the diversity of the experience of marriage can Scotland’s history in this regard be properly understood.
