The Role of Women: Community, Womanhood and Caretaking
Rwanda, Kenya, India, The United Kingdom
While caregiving can bring great satisfaction, it can also cause great harm. Caregiving can reduce an individual's ability to work, engage in relationships, and maintain one's own physical and mental health. During my Watson year I will explore the role of caregiving women, learn what led them to the role, their influences, and how they cultivate community and self-care.
