Event details

Discover the role women played in the French Revolution: from spies to prisoners, writers to speakers, women took part in every stage of the Revolution. Join us and learn about a few of these brave women. Dress up as a market woman marching on the streets or as a rich noblewoman at a ball, and make your own revolutionary badge.

Meet the researcher: Clare Burgess, Department of History, University of York
