The migrant experience of Greek women in Queensland was very different to those of their male family members.

In recognition of International Women’s Day this year, the Women in Greek Cafés panel explores the unsung lives of many Greek migrant women.  These women spent many hours behind the café counter, either cooking, cleaning, taking care of finances, taking care of the children and, often, all the above. This panel discussion brings together the three women whose lives were shaped in the cafés of the early 20th century – they were the wives, mothers, daughters of Greek café proprietors, and in some instances, business owners themselves.

Date: Tuesday 10 March, 2020

Time: 10.30am - 11.30am

Where:  Auditorium 2,  Level 2, State Library of Queensland
