Extraordinary women have held positions of power throughout history. But, aside from the select few, why do we not hear about them? Cultural historian, author and broadcaster Janina Ramirez puts women firmly back into history.
BBC historian Janina Ramirez has uncovered countless influential women’s names struck out of historical records, with the word ‘Femina’ annotated beside them. From royalty and religion to fame and fury, see the medieval world – and the women erased from it – with fresh eyes.
‘Absolutely brilliant.’ – Caitlin Moran
Janina will be in conversation with Alexandra Pringle. Alexandra was editor-in-chief of Bloomsbury Publishing for more than two decades working with such authors as Khaled Hosseini, Kamila Shamsie, Madeline Miller, George Saunders and Margaret Atwood.
