Friends of The Women’s Library Talks Programme

The next presentation in the talks programme of the Friends of The Women’s Library, on Wednesday 16 March at 2.30 pm, will be

Anne Summers, ‘The women who didn’t … reflections on female middle-class poverty, c. 1850-1950’.  

Dr Anne Summers, Honorary Research Fellow at Birkbeck, is a former Curator of Modern Historical Manuscripts at the British Library; most of her publications focus on women’s philanthropic activism in the 19th and 20th centuries.  This work-in-progress paper is prompted by her current research on the archive of The Working Ladies’ Guild for Necessitous Gentlewomen.
