Bristol Women Writing History: A Coronavirus Journaling Project: Why this is important

Why are we doing this?

  We are living in unprecedented times as this pandemic impacts us nationally and globally. In particularly women have been impacted the most. Gender, racial, and economic inequities that already existed in the United States are becoming magnified during the  twin health and economic crises facing the United States and the world. Women workers are on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19. Nearly 80 percent of healthcare workers and 83 percent of workers who provide social assistance, including childcare and emergency services, are women. The transition to online schooling and stay-at-home orders during the coronavirus pandemic required at least one adult in the home to focus on the children — helping them with schoolwork and supervising them all day. We believe highlighting women's voices at this time is of the upmost importance,  Please consider submitting your photographs, or original artworks; the primary goal of this project is to capture the female voice and how the pandemic has impacted daily lives and perspectives.
