Her Husband Was a Woman

Thursday 24th January 6-8pm

Alison Oram, another of our fabulously talented Peckham residents, will be talking about and signing copies of her new book. Alison is professor in Social and Cultural History at Leeds Metropolitan University. She is one of the foremost British scholars in the history of gender and sexuality. The book exposes real-life case studies from the British tabloids of women who successfully passed as men in everyday life, perhaps marrying other women or fighting for their country.
