Women of the Russian Revolution
From the assassination of Alexander II to the revolutions of 1917, women were at the centre of revolutionary activities, radicalising workers and enduring prison alongside their male comrades.
Historian and author Katy Turton will retell the history of the Russian revolution, putting the lives of these extraordinary women at its heart, and talk about how her historical research informed her debut novel, 'Blackbird's Song', set in 1905 during Russia's first revolution.
