Mary Kingsley Dead Ladies Show Podcast

    • History

The Dead Ladies Show is a series of entertaining and inspiring talks about women who achieved amazing things against all odds, presented live in Berlin. This podcast is based on that series. Because women's history is everyone's history. In this episode, we journey through the complicated life of Victorian-era explorer Mary Kingsley. She broke grounds for women and ethnography during her travels in West Africa, and DLS co-founder Florian Duijsens brings us her surprising and somewhat sad tale. Plus, we meet a bonus lady at the end, as journalist Binnur Cavuslu introduces us to Turkish activist, writer, and all-around badass Halide Edip Adivar, who even has a crater on Venus named after her by NASA. Find pictures of Mary’s expansive exploring outfits and Halide’s great moments as well as book links at: deadladiesshow.com/2018/06/28/podcast-10-mary-kingsley-halide-edip-adivar/ Follow us on social media @deadladiesshow and please share, rate, and review the show as it helps others to find our feminist women's history podcast The Dead Ladies Show was founded by Florian Duijsens and Katy Derbyshire.
