Janina Ramirez | History’s Forgotten Women
Sat 18 Nov 2023 | 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Historian Janina Ramirez reveals the ground-breaking truth on why women have been omitted from history. Male gatekeepers deliberately wrote them out – burning books and revising stories to exclude them. Nothing demonstrates this more clearly than the fact that some library catalogues show ‘FEMINA’ scribbled alongside texts authored by women, marking them as less worthy of preservation. Ramirez rehabilitates women struck from history, forging a path towards a fairer future for us all.
