Janina Ramirez Femina - Putting Women back in History

Extraordinary women have held positions of power throughout history. But male gatekeepers of the past ordered books to be burnt, artworks to be destroyed, and new versions of myths, legends and historical documents to be produced, which has manipulated our view of history.

She'll also reveal how many other misconceptions underpin our historical narratives, affecting our contemporary view of the past.
