Did women really do nothing to shape England’s culture and traditions through centuries of turmoil, plague, famine and religious reform? In her new non-fiction book, best-selling author Philippa Gregory questions the male version of history by recounting the stories of normal women: those who left records and those who were ‘hidden from history.’ By spotlighting their presence, she puts women where they belong – centre stage.
In this episode of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb talks to Philippa Gregory about women’s integral role in social and cultural change in the early modern era.
This episode was produced by Rob Weinberg.
