ABOUT THIS EVENT
Join Angelina Osborne in exploring the hidden voices of women in the archives, women who campaigned to have control over their lives and their families. From the Caribbean to India, to Britain, we are afforded small glimpses into these women’s lives, including the determination to receive a university education, serving the country during wartime, to raising awareness of injustices in institutions.
