Whilst we all know something about the suffragette struggle, we know less about other conflicting issues of the time and, importantly, those women who cared more about birds than votes. This talk shines an entertaining and informative light on some lesser known, ground-breaking movements which intertwined with the efforts of suffragettes.

About Charlotte Gringras

I'm an author of two published novels, four published short stories and many poems. I've also had a short play aired on radio and have written pieces for a local newspaper. I speak on my own behalf about my writing and about how that has woven itself into my life - and, conversely how my life has woven itself into my writing. My life experiences include my having been a teacher and an Interfaith worker, involved in my local Interfaith group, and the Jewish representative on two education Authorities' advisory groups for religious education. I am a trained bereavement counsellor, wife, mother and grandmother and all my roles, be they professional or not are of equal importance. My talk are light and last a long or short as people want. I charge a minimum of £70 and hope if possible to sell some novels while I am there...at a much reduced price. I can travel in or near Cheshire and greater Manchester. One talk title is : 'FROM SUFFRAGETTES TO SPAGHETTI : MY WRITING JOURNEY' or is 'Feathered friends and shrieking sisters: A Suffragette History.' or: Everything you've ever wanted to know about Judaism and were afraid to ask.' Do get in touch!
