Newington Green action group, who will be giving a talk on local historical figure Mary Wollstonecraft.
Mary Wollstonecraft was an unknown and unpublished school teacher when she moved to Newington Green in the 1780s. The people she met here radicalised and encouraged her, and she went on to write the world-changing A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792). The Newington Green Action Group, responsible for revitalising the green itself within the last decade, has set up a campaign, called Mary on the Green, to create a fitting memorial to one of England's first feminists.
Roberta Wedge, who blogs her own Wollstonecraft interests at A vindication of the rights of Mary, will be telling us about the campaign. There will then be a short pub quiz on related areas.
