The Wandering Womb Exhibitions

the_wandering_womb


This exhibition addresses what has been seen as “normal” for women, past and present, and why women’s health long been considered “dirty”.

In the ancient medical world it was believed that a “wandering womb” could cause suffocation and death. Menstruation and childbearing were thought to make women weaker and less rational than men. Rising above these challenges, 100 years ago, women secured the right to vote in the UK. At the same time, nursing was formalised as a largely female profession.
Since then, nurses have taken a leading role in challenging generalisations about women’s health. However, myths and misconceptions remain widespread, while medical and social changes have altered our biology as well as attitudes. Women are starting periods earlier and living longer beyond the menopause. This exhibition addresses what has been seen as “normal” for women, past and present, and why women’s health long been considered “dirty” nursing.
Opening times: 9am - 7pm, Monday - Friday and Saturday 9am - 5pm
