Historic Highland Women

From BBC News:
The lives of women in Highlands high society in the 18th and 19th centuries are to be explored in a lecture by historian Dr Stana Nenadic.

Her talk, in Dornoch, draws on research of letters, memoirs and poetry written by the wives and daughters of lairds and noblemen.

The lecture will be dedicated to the late historian and feminist Sue Innes.

It forms part of the 10th annual Women's History Scotland event, hosted by Dornoch's UHI Centre for History.

Dr Nenadic's free public lecture next Friday will be followed by a conference on Saturday called The Women in/on the Land (Scape): Gender, Space and Environment in Women's and Gender History.

It will also be held in Dornoch.
