Fair Maids, Feminists and Philanthropists
This walk was created for Southwark Council to celebrate International Women’s Day. It’s much too good to keep to a once a year slot. It is set in North Southwark, going from Blackfriars Bridge Road to Borough via Bankside. You’ll have heard of some of the women I imagine, but others, no less remarkable, such as Janet Johnson whose pioneering work with children is still having an impact half a century after her death, seem to slipped through the cracks of history. Come along to learn about and celebrate them. We’ll be near Gordon Ramsey’s new gaff, but as he is not the right gender for this walk, he won’t get more than a mention. Let’s hear it for the girls!
