International Women's Day: Man Up! Curator's Talk & Viewing

A curator's talk and tour of the Chawton House’s 2020 exhibition highlighting stories of women who stepped into male roles.

Chawton House’s 2020 exhibition highlights stories of women who stepped into male roles. By picking up a pen, pistol or sword, they broke with convention to survive and thrive. Out of necessity or choice, to seek glory or escape the fetters of a restrictive life – there were those who kept control over their inheritance, unashamedly sought fame, adopted fake names, took to the high seas, or even joined the army!

Meet these fascinating women in this curator's talk and tour of the 2020 exhibition, Man Up!
