Women and Wisdom explores women’s cultural and social roles as, amongst others, academics, writers, philosophers, poets, teachers, and healers in health and social services.  We look at the kinds of writing and books produced by and for women, starting with contemporary roles, in the 20th and 21st centuries, but we may go back in history to explore notions of ‘wise women’.  Members of the group will have a chance to suggest women they wish to discuss, and present a brief account of why they have been selected.

We meet weekly, one week on Zoom from 10.00-11.00 and the following week face-to-face from 10.00-12.00 at the Finchley Victoria Bowling & Croquet Club, N3.
