All Sun Jester's talks and entertainments aim to enlighten, divert and amuse audiences of all sizes and ages.

Most women in the past had few choices about life and marriage partners. More usually they found themselves ‘owned’ by, or in positions of dependence on, a man; father, husband, brother, guardian. This is the story of how some came up with drastic and novel solutions when this arrangement went wrong, displaying remarkable strength and resilience in a society whose attitudes and laws were weighed against them.
