Women talking together

Two women from different backgrounds discuss the unexpected challenges brought by the covid-19 pandemic

About this Event

The Covid-19 pandemic has dramatically shifted our appreciation for the caring roles in our society. ‘Clap for our carers’ brought the nation together during the first wave of the pandemic. However, it seems that, as the pandemic has evolved, the struggles faced by ‘key workers’ have been hidden away from the public eye.

This discussion brings together two women’s voices with two different backgrounds in caring roles to discuss the unexpected challenges of a most unprecedented year.

Discussion guided by Ren Bennet and Sophie Russell

Guests: Dr Louise Young and Rana Ibrahim

There will be time for Q & A throughout the discussion

Disclaimer and notice: this discussion may include topics on violence and sexual assault.

A note from guest speaker Dr Louise Young pictured below: My name is Louise and I am one of the junior doctors working in London. I’m currently working on a busy Acute Medical Unit seeing predominantly COVID positive patients. I spent the first wave of the pandemic providing medical care to the refugees in Samos, Greece and also refugees in Cape Town. The past year has been both challenging and unexpected in numerous ways.

Guest speaker Rana Ibrahim (pictured above) is an Iraqi archaeologist and Artist Ambassador with Outside In. She is also the founder of Iraqi Women Art and War (IWAW) project, a freelance artist and an education and outreach officer working with Iraqi women based in Oxfordshire helping them capture their war surviving oral stories through art.
