Women in History

Women in History is a group which involves research and discussion. We make whole group decisions about what we will cover and then each member finds out about a woman, or group of women, connected with a selected topic.

The topics are suggested by group members and we select the subjects that appeal to the most people.

Areas we have looked at so far include:

• Women in Britain before the Norman Conquest.
• Women in the Second World War.
• Women in medicine.
• Fashion
• Women entertainers pre 1930.
• British politics pre 1950.
• Women and the Law
• Women artists pre 1950
• Women authors pre 20th century.
• Sportswomen pre 1960.
• Women in opera

We have been amazed by some of the personalities we have discovered.
It is a friendly and lively group and we welcome new members. Please contact joint leaders Mo Nan & Vivienne Roffe
