Lost Women of History description

When Danielle Clode set out to research In Search of the Woman Who Sailed the World, about the first woman to circumnavigate the earth, she discovered scant details of an impoverished French peasant who embarked on her voyage disguised as a man. Judith Hoare’s The Woman Who Cracked the Anxiety Code is the overdue account of Australian Dr Claire Weekes, whose pioneering work on anxiety and depression still forms the basis of much contemporary treatment. Danielle and Judith reflect on these groundbreaking but overlooked women, and why women are written out of history.
