Remarkable Women

Note: English Heritage are asking for notable women from London's Past, so that they can be commemorated by a blue plaque. More details about the criteria and how to vote are in Links, to the right of this page.

This successful WFU3A group has an interesting concept behind it. The idea is that people talk about remarkable women who mean something to them. These might be personal: mothers, grandmothers, teachers, bosses, friends, or neighbours. Or they might be writers, poets, musicians, scientists, or politicians who have been important to them in their life.

Anna is very grateful to those members who keep their eyes peeled and pass suggestions and information on to her.
The group dedicates the monthly meeting to women in a particular area or field of life. Each member prepares two presentations - one around 10 minutes or so and one brief one. Photographs, books, interviews and personal recollections are all welcome.

Members will have a relaxed attitude as to whether everyone will be able to deliver in one session. They may decide to return a given theme again later on. The learning and the enjoyment are what's important.

There's still space for new members so contact Lesley if you'd like to try it.
