Shoreham & Southwick

Pop up - Women Trailblazers

P O S P O N E D

Our Trailblazers are three women of the 18th and 19th centuries who were invited to Judy Chicago's Dinner Party, a 20th century artwork celebrating inspirational women. Their vision and determination created changes that continue to resonate throughout the world yet you've most likely, never heard of them. The women all overcame significant obstacles to achieve their goals. They are:

  • Caroline Herschel (1750-1848) the first female astronomer, she was the first woman to discover a comet. Her achievements enabled generations of women to develop careers in the sciences, a field that was exclusively reserved for men.
  • Sojourner Truth (1797-1883) born into slavery, she escaped and worked with black and white abolitionists. helping to free slaves via the Underground Railroad. She became a powerful preacher and campaigned for women’s suffrage as well as black rights.
  • Elizabeth Blackwell (1821–1910) a British physician, who was the first woman to receive a medical degree in the United States. Eight years later, she founded the first U.S. hospital staffed entirely by women and created a medical college for the medical education of women.

There’ll even be an historical, tasty treat for our tea-break.

This home-based session is being facilitated by Merle and hosted by Tony and Maggie
