Choral Evensong with Lent address from Professor Joy Carter: 'Women in Society'
Sunday 25th February
15:00 - 16:00
Description:Choral Evensong is held in the Quire of Wells Cathedral and is sung by Wells Cathedral Choir during term time. 2018 marks the centenary of the end of World War One, a conflict that shaped the century to come in terms of theology, social practice and world politics. We have asked a series of preachers to explore some of these themes in addresses at Sunday Evensong during Lent, with tea and a seminar to follow each Sunday.Today's address will explore 'Women in Society' with Professor Joy Carter, Vice Chancellor of Winchester University. In the course of the conflict women took an increasingly public role in society, and the century to come became arguably their century, with votes, leadership and an emerging new voice in society. All are welcome!
