A Speaking Visit to La Rochelle, France

A few weeks ago I went to La Rochelle in France to talk to five schools there, where I talked more about the genesis of the book itself than the history of suffrage, and compared the French journey towards suffrage with that of the UK.

I was wracked with nerves before this one but the students [huge groups of between sixty and ninety-five] were charming and engaged and many stayed behind at the end of the talk to ask advice about writing. It was a wonderful trip.

These are some more articles about the visit (they’re all in French!):
