The men of the eighteenth-century Lunar Society are well known, but what of the Lunar women? Who were they and how important were they in the stories of their husbands and fathers? In this talk, Kate Iles will look at the Lunar ladies, considering the role the Lunar wives played in the development of their husband’s businesses and philosophical thought. Kate will examine the relationship between Lunar husbands and wives, fathers and daughters, recovering the history of the Lunar Ladies.
