A new exhibition at Halliwell’s House Museum, Selkirk, explores the lives of Border women in the world of work. With more women in the workplace than ever before, ‘Extinct Housewives’ charts the complex journey women have taken in the world of work through objects and images from collections. From 19th century bondagers to textile mill workers and the rise of the housewife in the 1950s, this exhibition tells the stories of Border women and their occupations. Discover how developments in legislation and technology opened up the opportunities women have today and how the story is still unfolding. Runs from June 13 to August 19. Free entry – donations welcome.
