Meeting ID: 923 850 1234 Passcode: 9238501234

Have you heard of Caroline Herschel? Marianne North? Constance Mayer? Nor had I until some visits to museums and galleries made me aware of these women and their significant achievements. There are many remarkable and talented women particularly in the last centuries who were astronomers, mathematicians, artists, writers, politicians etc, and for various reasons including the social conventions and restrictions of the time are relatively unknown.

The aim of this group is to explore and learn about some of their lives and achievements. We meet in members' homes and take it in turns to make a presentation about a remarkable woman that has inspired us. If you are interested (men are welcome too), please email by using the carrier pigeon on this page, or sign up at a monthly meeting.

Our attendances have been so good that we are rather bursting at the seams meeting in our house, Thanks go to our participants for their tolerance of the cramped conditions! We are going to try a new seating arrangement for this meeting, and depending on how this works, decide if we will have to move to another venue in the future.
