Long before the suffragettes and #MeToo, the pen was in these women’s hands.

This display in the library at Chawton House includes writers from Bathsua Makin (c1600-c1673) to Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797) who took on issues of equality, gender difference, biology as destiny, education and equal pay.
