Women’s words have often been dismissed as mere ‘gossip’, whilst men’s have been fêted and admired. But women’s letters can often reveal huge amounts about their writer’s lives and the boundaries that confined them, making them a fascinating portal into their private worlds. Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë, Elizabeth Gaskell and Mary Somerville are four such extraordinary women, whose lives we can explore through their private words.
The event will be held on March 8 at 7pm – 9pm GMT (2pm – 4pm EST) and is online. Cost is £10.
