Event description

Description

It is well-known that women are under-represented in museums, except as beautiful objects to look at. So, let’s done our anthropologist-cum-detective garbs and roam the British Museum in feminist mode. Muriel will tell us the stories of some of the women who came to read under the dome of the celebrated Reading-Room.

We will then discover some fascinating artists, discoverers and activists, and yes, there will be some beautiful marbles, and some fierce queens and awe-inspiring goddesses!

The meeting point is inside the British Museum's Great Court, at the foot of the colossal statue of the lion of Knidos.

Run by Muriel Carré, Blue Badge Guide of the Year 2018, this is a special tour is part of the celebrations of International Women's Day 2020. A series of wide-ranging walks across London, run by handpicked professional guides to showcase the surprising history of London's unsung hreoines.
