Parsonage Unwrapped: The Woman Question

Exclusive evening event

This is a past 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.
