From warrior queens, defiant writers, unsung heroes, suffragettes and the plight of the 'creative muse'; come join five writer/ performers as they re-tell the stories of some truly transgressive women in a night of storytelling, poetry, song and music.

    Featuring:
    Lucy Ribchester on the Suffragettes!
    Magi Gibson on Camille Claudel, Stella Cartwright and other muses!
    Jenny Lindsay on Sonia Orwell!
    Mara Menzies on Queen Nzinga of Angola!

    This event is a partnership event for Previously... Scotland's History Festival, programmed by Flint & Pitch, and brought to you with the kind support of 'The Year of Dangerous Women' project at The Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, University of Edinburgh.
