A professor of modern British history will talk about how women changed the political history of Warwickshire at a talk near Banbury this month.

Professor Sarah Richardson will discuss how Warwickshire women were a major force in pushing for the abolition of slavery at the Warmington Heritage Group’s next meeting.

She will also talk about how women from the county were instrumental in early democratic movements such as political unions and Chartism.
