Talk | Passions Between Women in Victorian Britain

Join the distinguished historian of gender and sexuality, Dr Lesley Hall, as she explores the fascinating subject of romantic friendship between women in the Victorian period. Were passions between women deemed appropriate only in adolescence, to be superseded by marriage, or were things rather different in reality? 


Dr Hall’s talk will examine the stories of women who loved and were loved by other women in 19th-century Britain, which reveal a more varied account than the stereotypes allow.
