'The Lives of Tudor Women'. A talk by Dr Elizabeth Norton

Saturday 7 March, 2pm - 3:30pm

On the eve of International Women's Day join us to learn more about women in the Tudor period.
The turbulent Tudor age never fails to capture the imagination. But what was it actually like to be a woman during this period? This was a time when death in infancy or during childbirth was rife; when marriage was usually a legal contract, not a matter for love, and the education of women was minimal at best. Yet the Tudor century was dominated by powerful and characterful women in a way that no era had been before. Join historian, Dr Elizabeth Norton, as she discusses the lives lived, or endured, by Tudor women from all levels of society.
Tickets: £5.
Surrey History Centre, 130 Goldsworth Road, Woking, GU21 6ND.
Please book a place online, in person at Surrey History Centre or any Surrey Library or phone 01483 518737.
