It's our first Feminist Book Club of the year and this month we are reading Cathy Newman's book 'Bloody Brilliant Women: The Pioneers, Revolutionaries and Geniuses Your History Teach Forgot to Mention'
For hundreds of years we have heard about the great men of history, but what about herstory?
In this freewheeling history of modern Britain, Cathy Newman writes about the pioneering women who defied the odds to make careers for themselves and alter the course of modern history; women who achieved what they achieved while dismantling hostile, entrenched views about their place in society. Their role in transforming Britain is fundamental, far greater than has generally been acknowledged, and not just in the arts or education but in fields like medicine, politics, law, engineering and the military.
It doesn't matter if you've read half of it, the whole book or even just the first 10 pages - come along and be part of the conversation.
We look forward to seeing you there.
