The early Quaker movement was unusual in the freedom it afforded women to be preachers, prophets and writers. The course will cover Margaret Fell, Martha Simmonds, Sarah Blackborrow, Dorothy White and Elizabeth Bathurst. In our sessions we shall get to know these women, using short talks, the reading of texts and group discussion within a safe and friendly atmosphere.
