A rare opportunity to hear renowned US historian Max Dashu, founder of the Suppressed Histories Archives.

Thursday 29 October 2015 
7.00-9.00pm (please arrive by 6.45pm)
The Centre at St Pauls, Hills Road, Cambridge

To reserve a place please email Dr Julia Long.

Max Dashu presents her global visual survey of female leadership, creativity, wisdom, and courage: female spheres of power in politics, economics, religion, medicine, technology (farmers, builders, weavers!), arts and letters. This is a rich tapestry of women famous and anonymous, ancient and modern --the women skipped over by the writers of history, especially Indigenous women, and women who fought back against domination. We'll look at Monumental women, founders, chieftains, queens, and clan elders; foragers, farmers, and traders; seers, shamans, priestesses, medicine women; physicians, educators, writers, and scientists; athletes, warriors, rebels, liberators, and activists.

£8 full-price / £5 students and concessions (Payable on the door; cash only please)

Refreshments provided. Posters and DVDs available for purchase.
