Museum’s breaking silence on women

HENLEY’S River and Rowing Museum will mark International Women’s Day with a special lecture next Saturday (March 9).

“Breaking silences in the archive” will reflect on the value of recording women’s words in oral history.

A spokesman for the museum in Mill Meadows, said: “How does writing history change when archives have been historically determined and defined by men? Through the context of women’s rowing, this talk will consider the power of the archive and reflect on recording women’s words in oral history as a way of breaking archival silences and addressing archival omissions.”

Tickets for the one-hour talk, which starts at 11.30am, are priced £6.
