Remarkable Women

This is a new group with an interesting new concept behind it. Initially the idea is that people will 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.

At its first meeting there were great presentations on Ellen Wilkinson and Ursil Lewis, both of which stimulated interest and wider discussion.

The group has decided to dedicate the monthly meeting to women in a particular area or field of life. Each member will prepare two presentations - one around 10 minutes or so and one brief one. Photographs, books, interviews and personal recollections are all welcome. They will be starting with 'Women in Science' and they hope to map out a programme for the next six months.

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.
