St Pancras Women's history event
The Somers History Town Club is hosting a fascinating online fundraising event on Thursday 29 April about the women of St Pancras. From radical writers to pioneers of women’s rights, suffragettes and a royal mistress, this online talk covers the remarkable women who left their mark on St. Pancras.
Author and guide Rachel Kolsky will be sharing their stories of towering figures such as Elizabeth Garret Anderson, the first woman in Britain to gain a medical qualification and her sister, Milicent Fawcett, who led Britain's National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies.
You'll also hear about Mary Wollstonecraft, the earliest feminist and her daughter Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein, as well as later housing pioneers.
This event is a fundraiser by the Somers Town History Space for a People's Museum which preserves the history of the area.
