About this Event

Hi Home Girlsss...

Sooo... As a collective, we can all agree that it’s been a pretty rough year! There’s been many ups and downs; now more than ever we need a space to let loose and relax for a couple of hours. This is why we thought it was important to make our last event a big one. Eldest Daughter Day; For eldest Daughters, By Eldest Daughters.

This event will provide a safe space for eldest daughters to connect online, share stories, learn, laugh and maybe even cry (if you’ve been to any of our events before you know the drill).

We have been running Home Girls Unite for two years now and we have learnt what the women in our community want and need the most. We are holding this end of year event to celebrate the eldest daughters in our lives! We want to invite eldest daughters who are doing amazing work in different fields to run workshops for others to show them how they can use the skills that they have developed (from all the years of unpaid labour!) to benefit themselves and those around them.Eldest daughters from immigrant households have always been made to help everyone before helping themselves. Many have had to grow up and become adult’s way before their time and have often had to do so without the guidance of an adult. We want this day to be a day where they can ask experts (all who eldest daughters themselves are) the questions they were unable to ask their parents. Whether it is what contraception is best, how to negotiate a better salary or how to apply eyeshadow. We want to provide them with the people who can answer their why questions.
