Dead Ladies Show

Dead Ladies Show: an Aotearoa first

Dead Ladies Show is a Berlin-based salon that celebrates women from history. We presented the first Aotearoa version on the final night of the festival in 2018 and it was a BLAST! Kirsten McDougall talked about visionary Simone Weil; Dr Maraea Rakuraku talked about Irihapeti Ramsden, a Māori nurse, writer, educator & anthropologist.; and Jessie Bray Sharpin talked about pioneering mountaineer and journalist Constance Barnicoat.

Dead Ladies Show producer (Susan Stone) put together this podcast so you can listen in to Maraea and Jessie’s brilliant talks on two exceptional women.
