These  collaborative and combined works explore the obstacles facing women employed in the private home and highlight the contributions they make daily in their  lives.  Also featuring a textile work by the DWSG, this exhibition is an  intriguing insight into an extremely valuable, yet invisible employment sector  and group of women in contemporary Irish society.
