Unsung Heroines

Unsung Heroines

Almeida Theatre · 25 JUN - 25 JUN

Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman. – Virginia Woolf

Overview

Where are all the female writers in the history books? The poets, playwrights, published authors? When most novels from the eighteenth-century were written by women, why do we end up with a canon and literary syllabus that boiled the rise of the novel down to men?

Inspired by Sophie Treadwell, whose play Machinal was the only text out of 39 she wrote in her lifetime to be published, this Almeida Questions panel celebrates unsung literary heroines from the past, digs into their resounding absence in memory and looks ahead to a future where female stories and voices are not forgotten.
