Forgotten Wives – Ann Oakley

10 February @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Forgotten Wives examines the ways in which marriage has contributed to the ‘disremembering’ of women’s achievements. Ann Oakley examines the conventions of history and biography-writing using case studies of the wives of well-known men – Charlotte Shaw, Mary Booth, Jeannette Tawney and Janet Beveridge.

Join us to hear Ann talk about her book.

We are still hoping this will be a hybrid event – on Zoom and with a limited audience in the hall – but please register early so we can keep you informed as things develop .
