Six Trailblazing Medieval Women: BBC History Magazine

I'm delighted to say that my article on "Six Trailblazing Medieval Women" has appeared on the BBC History Magazine website. My editors at Oxbow Books who publish A Medieval Woman's Companion: Women's Lives in the European Middle Ages arranged this connection. Social media is a great way to share the lives of dynamic and influential of women from the past. I hope you enjoy reading about the playwright Hrotsvit of Gandersheim; Margaret of Beverley who unexpectantly fought in the Crusades; profound writer and famous lover Heloise d'Argenteuil; audacious innovator Hildegard von Bingen; vocal feminist Christine de Pizan; and matchless matriarch Margaret Paston.
