What's happening?

Pick up your average history textbook and you’d be forgiven for thinking that until the 20th century it was only men that did anything.

10 sets out to redress that balance, by celebrating the too often unacknowledged achievements of ten important and influential women across history, from Æthelflæd (ruler of Mercia) to Gwen John (painter) via Mary Prince (writer and abolitionist) and Ada Lovelace (mathematician).

10 explores the unique prejudices and obstacles women have faced and continue to face as a result of their sex, particularly at the intersection of other forms of oppression.

It runs at VAULT Festival 2019, from 13-17 March at 7.30pm and on Saturday 16 March at 3pm. Runtime 1hr.
