As part of our AHRC funded project Challenging Domesticity in 1890-1990 project, we are hosting a series of video lectures from academics based on the theme ‘Activism and the Home’.

In this video, Lecture #2, Prof. Caitriona Beaumont gives a presentation on the topic: ”Who wants to be “Mrs 1963?”: How housewives’ associations challenged the stereotype of the perfect housewife in postwar Britain’.”

Prof Caitríona Beaumont is Professor of Social History in the Division of Social Sciences at London South Bank University. Caitríona works on the history of female activism, female networks and women’s movements in Ireland and Britain throughout the nineteenth and twentieth century.

You can find out more about Caitríona’s work below:
