Let's discover the untold histories of female pirates and trailblazers through the ages

About

Join Royal Museums Greenwich for Women's History Month this March as we discover the untold histories of female pirates and trailblazers through the ages.

Drawing on the knowledge of writers, performers and academics involved, we look at the pioneers who forged their own future in an overwhelmingly male-dominated society.

The series of talks sheds new light on female pirates and gender non-conforming histories within the navy. These include the exploits of Zheng Yi Sao (Ching Shih) – the most successful pirate in history – and the life of William Brown  – said to be the first Black woman in the Navy, all of whom pushed gender and sexual boundaries on the high seas.

The programme kicks off with a screening of Matriarchs, a drama by writer and biographer Anne Chambers. This production centres around the meeting of the Pirate Queen Grace O'Malley and the Virgin Queen Elizabeth I in 1593.
