Parsonage Unwrapped: The Woman Question

Exclusive evening event

Exclusive evening event

2018 is the centenary of partial female suffrage, and our Parsonage Unwrapped event in September focuses on what it would have been like to be a working woman in the nineteenth century. The Brontë sisters knew from a young age that they would have to earn a living and were educated to become governesses and teachers, while the Brontë servant Martha Brown had barely left her teens before she began working as a servant to the Brontë family. This evening explores the working lives of the women of the Parsonage, and how they operated within the constraints and expectations of the age.

Tickets £20/£17.50 concessions and Brontë Society members, includes a glass of wine. Please book in advance at www.bronte.org.uk/whats-on or by calling 01535 640192.
