The Trailblazer Tour: Putting the Poetry into the Place!
September 30 @ 10:00 - 11:00
- Who made it her mission to empower women and is linked to the first hospice in Europe for patients with HIV/ AIDS?
- Who stood up for Jewish women’s rights and was described as having ‘a touch of genius’?
- Who criticised Britain’s colonial project and defended the rights of animals in the 18th and 19th centuries?
Traces of their lives still exist along the Islington and Hackney borders! And women’s poetry tells us how and why they mattered!
Part of the ‘Walks through Women’s History’ series designed by me – Johannah the Poetry Guide – in partnership with Newington Green Meeting House.
A trip of an hour and a half – plus cuppa time at the Meeting House – starting at Dalston Kingsland Station.
