History student working on women's history in the Early Modern period. My Laidlaw Research focused on French Revolutionary Women and their responses to misogyny, using archival documents to evidence their resistance. My masters thesis will consider the agency of sex workers in European cities at the end of the 16th century, and will be conducted at the University of Oxford.

Clare  Really liked the poster and the points made.  I used to teach a course with a strong element of the French Revolution in it.  The points you make are very much reflected in that module.  Its good to see the role of women in the Revolution explored.  I have often wondered how much research the role of women within the Royalist community ahs been explored as a reaction to the revolution.

Most impressed.
