Happy International Women’s Day!
As a female-led company we are ALL about celebrating women, and today I thought I’d give a special mention to Aphra Behn who is credited with being the first ever professional female playwright, who was alive in the 1600s.
Behn’s life is something of a mystery but what we DO know is she was one of the most prolific writers of the English Restoration and that she was very unusual for her time for her concern for equality of the sexes!
If Aphra could do it the 1600s there definitely shouldn’t be ANY barriers stopping any woman or girl from following their passions because of their gender – so channel a bit of her spirit this IWD.!
