Lecture - Derek McAuley - “Unitarian Women Who Made a Difference”
Derek will be talking about a number of women, including Ellen Nye chart, manager of Brighton's Theatre Royal from 1876 until her death in 1892, at a time when middle class women did not work. She presented the church with a window. Philanthropist Jeminia During-Lawrence donated the church's organ. Elizabeth Whitehead opened the experimental Portman Hall School with Barbara Leigh Smith, helped found the Working Women's College, and went on to establish rural district nursing. Clementia Doughty married Peter Alfred Taylor, who became a radical MP. Clementia participated in all his activities, including being a significant figure in the women's suffrage movement. Derek will explore the life of prominent educationalists and reformer Lady Byron, who had strong Unitarian connections, and was a regular visitor to Brighton.
