700 women presents 'stroppy women'
Sun 23 October 2016, 14:00 – 15:30 BST
The (often forgotton) lives of some remarkable women from Southampton’s past – witch-hunters, writers, heroines, intrepid travellers, merchants, actresses – the one thing they have in common was making such a stir they are recorded in the town archives, usually because they were seen to be behaving outside the moral norms [often set by men]. So join a walk around their favourite haunts, their houses and their memorials, join Dr Cheryl Butler on Sunday 23 October at 2pm from Holy Rood Church, High Street, Southampton, to find out more.
